      Description

      There have been several requests for the ability to change fairly fundamental bits of application configuration at runtime, such as which resource a resource-ref points to. Currently the only way to do this is to redeploy the reconfigured application, and changing this would break a lot of our implementation and some of our philosophy.

      Perhaps a better way to approach this kind of problem is to version applications, and have a process for seamlessly switching between versions of an application.

      So, to change the target of a resource-ref, you'd configure a new "copy" of your app with the new target, deploy it, and undeploy the old version.
