Yes. We will lose users in droves. I know. 

I still consider the final summary to be the best compromise 
between the different standpoints. (I.e. I got the stuff that
I need in order for me to stay with Avalon.)

Oh, you'll get a rewrite. However, before 5.0 is rolled out,
backward compatibility classes will exist. 

I do think we still at least somewhat believe that 
"common framework" (http://jakarta.apache.org/avalon) means 
some kind of API stability.

So, are we all committed to making the upgrade gradual?

Will it be possible to deploy A4 component in an A5 environment
wihout rewriting a single character of code?

I think it must be.
