very nice :-)

well, I have some pending commits to do, to finalize the BundleMatcher
facility and write some different BundleLoader implementations
(bundle-per-file vs. many-bundles-per-file).
I'm not sure if it works right now, haven't tried yet in any "real"

Also I want to take advantage of the new components that were/are migrated
over from Cocoon (Source, XmlConsumer, etc).

well, the implementation isn't finished yet, so it is not 100% stable
implementation-wise :-)

No, Bundle support is there just for i18n purposes (at least at this stage).
How do you see that it could help the management of the Excalibur Component
Manager xml files or why would you want to run XPath queries on
org.apache.avalon.configuration.Configuration? AFAIK, the configuration
system is on purpose designed not to allow this kind of things (to keep it
simple and avoid people shooting themselves in the foot).

Maybe you would like to join in with all the Bundle stuff? Any help is
always welcome (testing, docs, patches, etc.) :-)
Would like to finally get the i18n stuff out of scratchpad, for the others
to see and use...
