I don't like how this turned out. I was expecting you not to look at the
exported resources from the ocelot-core anymore - that was kind of the
point of using just the names rather than the whole resource definitions.

I am also sorry for the mess that the felix driver currently is in, and
the fact that some things may have confused you. I will prepare a patch
set which offers an alternative to this, and send it for review.
