Bootstrapping, the new frontier

Bootstrapping CIlib is providing some interesting challenges.

We need to have a selection of predefined bindings and then have them dynamically overridden when needed. This is only on the specification usage of CIlib, so the API usage will remain relatively unchanged (for the moment - some setters might be removed in future versions)

To address these issues, we have written some interesting code to get the overrides working correctly. This is still very much a work in progress, but I feel we are on the right track at least.

Nothing is set in stone at the moment, but the Bootstrapping API is changing a lot. It's exciting to get the new framework up and running :D
