[wildfly-dev] Customizing a provisioned server

Not necessarily. Everything in the end speaks the underlying management 
API. But that doesn't mean the syntax needs to be the raw dmr or json 

This is primarily about UX and parsing. If we supported CLI syntax 
there's no requirement to also parse basic DMR. The CLI itself doesn't.

If we support CLI syntax though it seems logical to use the CLI libs 
themselves to do it. Otherwise we are maintaining two code bases for the 
same thing. (I doubt the CLI parsing code can easily be extracted out 
for reuse, although I may be wrong.)
