Provide the ability to add @Option Converters for custom types

                 Key: SEAMFORGE-88
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SEAMFORGE-88
             Project: Seam Forge
          Issue Type: Enhancement
          Components: Plugin API, Shell
    Affects Versions: 1.0.0.Alpha2
            Reporter: Lincoln Baxter III

This process should be encapsulated with a Forge interface API, adapter, and ServiceLoader for extension.

   void init(@Observes final Startup event, final PluginCommandCompleter pluginCompleter) throws Exception
      BooleanConverter booleanConverter = new BooleanConverter();

      addConversionHandler(boolean.class, booleanConverter);
      addConversionHandler(Boolean.class, booleanConverter);
      addConversionHandler(File.class, new FileConverter());
      addConversionHandler(Dependency.class, new DependencyIdConverter());
      addConversionHandler(URL.class, new URLConverter());

public interface OptionValueConverter<T> {

   public boolean supports(Class<?> type);

   public T convert(Object value);


This interface should support injection.
