I am absolutely delighted that Ryan was willing to do this work.  But, my
question is ... why is it done here instead of inside Tomahawk?  If a JSF
component library wants to claim compatibility with a JSF view technology
(Clay or Facelets), it seems reasonable that the library would be the place
to manage this sort of thing ... that way, they could declare an optional
dependence on a particular version of Clay, or Facelets, and provide the
appropriate metadata configuration for each release of the components.

Expecting the framework provider (Clay or Facelets) to keep up with each
library isn't scalable in the long run.
