@ellisonanne the service-plugin model allows better extensibility than pure
reflection and is a well known pattern so should be easier for others to
develop new responders.
This means that we keep platform designators and a developer for a new
responder adds his/her own designator via `getPlatformName` which will be
available when the jar is on the class path. (I could actually put those into
the command line but I won't as the config is in flux - todo I guess).
It also allows a shorter command line
with the same benefits.
