      I think we should tidyup/consolidate the InitialContext factories
      anyway.

      We already have a number of different implementations doing
      different things (excluding the protocol specific ones):

      org.jnp.NamingContextFactory
      Basic, but also includes hardwired ha policy

      org.naming.NamingContextFactory
      Provides access to the last jndi env

      org.jboss.security.jndi.JndiLoginInitialContextFactory
      Does an automatic login

      org.jboss.iiop.naming.ORBInitialContextFactory
      For automatic orb injection in case somebody uses CosNaming

      My preference is to use JBoss Remoting's notion of a locator
      for the provider url.
