Right now, we can say:

    @PluginFactory
    public static ConcurrentMap<String, Appender> createAppenders(
                @PluginElement("Appenders") final Appender[] appenders) {

and you get an array of type Foo, which is really neat.

What it be out of bounds to think of doing:

@PluginElement("Thing") final Map<String, Thing> thingMap

?

My use case would be:

    @PluginFactory
    public static ConcurrentMap<String, Appender> createAppenders(
                @PluginElement("Appenders") final Appender[] appenders,
                @PluginElement("Script") final
Map<String, Script> scriptMap) {


What is the key? Good question It could be 1) Thing.getKey() or 2)
Thing.getName() or whatever method is decorated with a new @PluginKey
annotation.

Thoughts?
