[cdi-dev] [seam-dev] Enabling extensions

I remember that we discussed this 2 years ago ;)

In Apache MyFaces CODI we introduced an internal Deactivatable interface which by default gets implemented via

    public boolean isActivated()
        return ClassDeactivation.isClassActivated(getClass());

(another internal class).

and in the Extension itself

A similar mechanism should be available in each bigger Extension library (not only containing 1 single CDI Extension)
But would be helpful to have something like that in the standard of course!
