This sounds really interesting. One of the points of interest /
confusion for us is whether turbine would need to be bootstrapped by
something else or whether it could _be_ the container as in the current
model. If we can gradually move toward encapsulating all our services as
Avalon-Framework components, but still keep the turbine servlet at the
top I think that will alleviate a lot of concerns.

Not to say that I am opposed to having turbine managed by something else
(Phoenix I believe?), only that it gives us less we _have_ to do right

I'm just getting my head around all this though, so maybe I'm way off
