      Description

      Create a new plugin resolving mechanism that loads plugins at runtime rather than at startup. We need to modify the Locationmap somthing like this:

      <match pattern="plugin.xmap.*">
        <location src="{project:tmp}/{1}/>
        <install src="http://f.a.o/plugins/0.8/{1}/>
        <install src="http://f.a.o/plugins/0.7/{1}/>
        <location src="{forrest:plugin.fallback}/error.pluginNotFound.xmap"/>
      </match>

      The we can dynamically install features at run time rather than at startup. We would even be able to add plugins at runtime.
