      Description

      This is a proposal to support reloadable configurations in the configuration
      descriptor parsed by ConfigurationFactory. I suggest two forms, a complete form
      to fine tune the strategy applied to the configuration:

      <configuration>
      <properties fileName="config.properties">
      <reloading-strategy
      class="org.apache.commons.configuration.reloading.FileChangedReloadingStrategy">
      <param name="refreshDelay" value="30000"/>
      </reloading-strategy>
      </properties>
      </configuration>

      and a short form:

      <configuration>
      <properties fileName="config.properties" reloadable="true"/>
      </configuration>

      This short form will use a FileChangedReloadingStrategy with the default values.
      This form keeps the descriptor simple for those that don't bother fine tuning
      the performance of the reloading mechanism.
