I like the class loading pattern, but I'm not sure about the global
nature of the system property. However, it is sufficient for our

a property hash to a number of the constructors that could be
used to specify alternative classes for not only the type factory,
but also the request or response processor, or the worker. This
would provide more graceful construction as more optional features
are added.

The JNDI InitialContext and JAXP {SAXParser,DocumentBuilder}Factory
API's use similar concepts.
