The api/spi pluggable providers as implemented in Issue_74-78 envision a single
provider instance and static api methods. Issue 220 requests instance methods
on each service.
Will each service.getInstance() method return a singleton, or will multiple
service instances be created?
If/when the spi plug point is added, is there going to be a single provider
instance or a provider instance per service instance?
An additional factor affecting these decisions is the desire to run in a
classloader container environment such as JPF. (Look at issue 235)
