I'm all for the DI for the Configuration management, but in order to
minimize the impact to the various different interfaces, I think we probably
want to have the idea that each method is aware of its context (user,
user-config, ...). Not sure how we would do this with simple

All I'm thinking at the moment, is somehow annotate those methods that start
a "request" (they will need interface changes), and then allowing any other
method to query the current state of the request by calling a
"getMeTheCurrentContext". What I want to avoid is having to rewrite most of
the method signatures across JSword to be passing down the current

Any ideas welcome...
