Cool.  The factory implementations are about to change.  I'm logged in via
web mail right now and don't have access to all my Bugzilla records; Boris
if you're reading this could you provide the bug number where we're
discussing this so that Phil can get a sense for where this is headed?

We're actually about to remove those messages and promote stuff to full
API.  The only major change we're talking about making before announcing
our API is the factory change I mentioned above.

Are you going to be at EclipseWorld?  If so, I'd love to meet you.
