I don't quite understand what you mean here.  If we wrote a subclass of Path
that dealt with .classpath files, we'd be able to refid it into anywhere
that a Path was accepted.

The clunkiness comes from the fact that we can't make the syntax and
extensibility much cleaner (re: Peter -1'ing the DynamicConfigurator).

If no one beats me to it, I'll dig in and give this a shot in a few weeks.
