So you think our glass walls could take it?

+1 with the following addendum:

Not only do we consider the user feedback seriously, but the
way we implement the requests needs to be with the best
interests in mind.

Example: marker interfaces are bad due to a number of reasons
already passed around on the list.  Meta Data is better.  They
both accomplish the same goal, but they represent different
ways to get at the information.

BTW, we should give a taste of the *good* things we have in
store.  Just by saying we have all kinds of good things in
store doesn't really help the user:

* We are defining container contracts better so that any component
  written to Avalon specs will run in any container.

* We are implementing a standard meta-data system to help
  ensure a secure environment, and allow complex component

What we *don't* pass on the list is anything where a user may
percieve loss of functionality (like the whole pooling issue).
The idea is to get feedback not hungry cannibles looking for
supple white meat.
