Makes sense.

Threadcontext isn't really part af the 
framework-containers-components-serverapps Avalon subdivision that's 
taking place.

Since Commons sandbox is exactly for possibly common components that 
still need to mature, I guess that we could still move it there and keep 
working on it as if it were here... but with the advantage of having it 
already in a common place where others can look at it and eventually 
help making it better.
I think that this is the best policy.

Basically, take the excalibur left-hand menu.

- Containers -> stay in excalibur
- Components -> new cornerstone
- Resource Managers -> dunno
- Testing and Analysis -> dunno
- Utilities -> *all* to commons (except the ones improperly here)

This is how I see the new excalibur, what do you think?
What should we do about Resource Managers? Make them just 
new-cornerstone components?
Testing and Analysis can just remain part of excalibur.
