This is one of my favorite patterns to use with things like manufacturing lines and work cells where there is a lot of common activity (barcode reading, inventory control, etc) but the implementation details vary to some degree from work area to area.
Hey Frank, I know this is super old, but do you happen to have any examples around of the use case you described? I'm building basically the same type of system for manufacturing lines and trying to tackle the issue without blowing up our config files further. Also, for the first time, we'll have to conditionally load extern dll's in each strategy also, so I don't know how to prevent bundling in every extern dll into my deployment binaries.
