  Sometimes it is hard to think of some good names for a component.
  Heres a mail from Leo that should provide inspiration;
  
  Subject: excalibur package naming (RE: [VOTE] Should Command be a sub of event?)

   Most important *event* in medieval times:
  joust
  market
  
  *Systems* used in medieval times:
  nobility (duke),
  monarchy (king),
  sword (knight),
  armor (platemail),
  fortress (castle),
  sorcery (morgana),
  guild (peasanty),
  ...
  
  *Components* in medieval, mythical england times:
  spell (cantrip),
  weapon (sword, lance),
  ...
  
  *Component management*:
  spellbook (arcana),
  library (tome),
  librarian (sage),
  ...
  
  you could rename:
          excalibur.event -> excalibur.joust,
          excalibur.system -> excalibur.fortress,
          excalibur.component -> excalibur.sage
  
  if you want more, I used to be (still am, to
  some extend) a big AD&D freak (me, I'm geek to
  the bone :) so I can dig up a _lot_ more for
  you if you have specific requests...you could
  have excalibur.component named to
  excalibur.sword and different component
  imps and manager excalibur.broadsword,
  excalibur.katana, excalibur.longsword, ...
  
  note: if we ever do rename framework I think
  "camelot" would be the term for it (even though
  that used to be something else), as camelot
  really was the core of Avalon =)
  
  cheers,
  
  - Leo
