    metron-extensions/ has it spelled out.
    Basically, an extension is a 'special' form of the existing metron assemblies, which package
up the configuration and patterns and uber jars.
    The difference ( besides parser relative pathing/target locations ) is that instead of
an uber jar, an extension packages the executable code in a bundle.
    So - the extension is the sum of its loadable code ( bundle ) and it's configurations/patterns.
    At least for parsers.  Each extension type will be bundle + ???
