Guice 2.0 and OSGi

Some cool news: the Guice trunk (which will eventually become 2.0) now includes my patches to support OSGi-style classloading, and also adds OSGi metadata to its jars.

This means that you will be able to take the Guice 2.0 jar and drop it onto any OSGi framework, without having to worry about classloading issues wrt. the internal proxy code. The new code also allows generated proxy classes to be unloaded when they're no longer needed.

So when Guice 2.0 hits the internet, the peaberry project will become a neat little extension library that you can drop alongside the Guice jar to inject OSGi services.

Good stuff! ( no more patches :)
