      Currently, the only way to pass system props to a container (say, JBoss AS 7), is to use

        <property name="javaVmArguments">-Dfoo=bar</property>

      It would be great if system properties could be specified in a special way, like:

      • by loading a .properties file and setting them in JVM
      • from a deployment
      • from a path
      • from an URL
      • by a special config elements
      • by taking them all from the launching JVM; possibly only those with a given prefix

      Here's how I'd imagine it. Params in [] are optional, with default values.

      	<container qualifier="jboss" default="true">
      			<property name="jbossHome">target/smoke</property>
      			<property name="javaVmArguments">${server.jvm.args}</property>
      			<property name="serverConfig">${server.config:standalone.xml}</property>
      			<property name="allowConnectingToRunningServer">true</property>
      				<copyCurrent [prefix="arq."]/>
      				<loadFromDeployment [path="META-INF/arq.system.properties"] [optional="false"]>
      				<loadFromFile       path="../testsuite/my.properties" [optional="false"]>
                                      <loadFromUrl        url="http://foo.redhat.com/foo.properties" [optional="true"]>
      				<property name="jbossas.ts.integ.dir">${fooBar}</property>
