I see. I take it that the resolver is usable outside of an OSGi
context? I mean, as I said, the launcher I have in mind wouldn't be an
OSGi application: It'd be trying to work out the right set of
parameters to create a new OSGi context in another process.

I'd trust bnd to get things right, given my experiences with it so far.
I'm currently using bndtools indirectly via the maven-bundle-plugin, as
I use a Maven build environment. It hadn't occurred to me that bndtools
had an API, although the existence of the Maven plugin probably should
have made this obvious... I'll give it a look!
