It has been vetoed ... wait a few months and I will surely bring it up
again though ;)

No it was serious. I have already accepted change that I don't think are
100% optimal. My opinion is that there should be nothing in
org.apache.avalon.* namespace (bad advertising). It is much better to make
everything in other namespaces but use advertising to get message across
about where it is from (ie AvalonFramework or avalon-framework as name of
jars). I also don't like idea of merging in components+aut code, nor
merging framework code and component code etc. The implementation-interface
non-separation is also a little yucky but not something that I think is
worth persuing yet. All in all I have made many a compromise to try to
bring Avalon to beta ... and I was willing to support it as such. However a
straw can break a camels back ;)
