Defining that interface is the hard part of the job. I don't know yet
how it will be, but it will typically add a set of methods to the
SecurityManager (eg checkResourceStoreAccess, to check if the
downloaded resource can access a resource store, etc).

No, I will keep implementing Jigsaw extensions as resources, but will
benefit from other people writing servlets, that's the idea. I will
certainly not drop resources in favor of servlets.
