    New feature deployer

    Looking for some feedback on this one.
    We do a lot of hot upgrades to our servers by just updating the local feature XML files,
and have noticed some issues in the current version, most importantly:
    1. Ref counting is broken, so features/bundles are frequently not uninstalled even when
they are no longer required as a dependency of install=auto features
    2. Removing or replacing a repository (feature XML file) does not remove bundles contained
in it even if they were no longer referenced as a dependency anywhere, leaving a lot of running
orphaned components
    This feature deployer rewrite is our attempt to resolve these issues. It does change the
behavior, but only to fix what currently seems broken.
