Can you also allow things to be loaded from a directory structure (not 
packaged into a jar file)?

(That would be consistent with how the Java class path mechanism works
in general, and with how a Web Application can exist as either a .war 
file or as a directory structure in the file system.

It would allow more-flexible development of custom tasks and the
configuration file.)
