Do we really need configuration files for this. Wouldn't the same be possible
with a *.Native redirection module?
In general, I would be very careful with following Java because, in my
opinion, Java solutions are often not very nice (consider, e.g., Java's type
system prior to J2SE 1.5).

I would strongly favour mechanisms which give us type safety instead of
mechanisms just using strings.
