Danny, it seems that you have a good idea of what you would like to see, 
could you give me some pointers, maybe an implementation idea? :-)

You see, the version info *has* to be somewhere, and if it's in the jars 
it simply doesn't scale. How can a system scan a remote DB looking in 
all the jars till it finds the right one? I don't see practical means of 
getting the info fast without externalizing the data, no?
