      Description

      Using a mechanism of property files for describing services is good enough:
      - easy to support
      - flexible: allows to describe whatever we need
      - human readable

      One problem with using it I bumped into - some magic is used, like
      native.pattern = %p

      To get things better:
      - a readme file should be provided
      - in all property files that readme file should be mentioned
      - the readme file should:
        * general description of what should be provided os.properties files
        * list all "fields" supported by mechanism: args, app, pattern, etc
        * a few examples given
