Once this is done, any Java code anywhere in the Sakai JVM can do
To retrieve the value of that property key. The use case for this is if a third-party jar that we do not want to modify in Sakai needs a bit of configuration in order to work. As an example, a Factory within a third party jar might need to be told which implementation to use when running within the Sakai JVM.
I would like to see this back-ported to 10.x once we like the implementation.
