no. The discussions are mainly pie in the sky stuff with a high risk factor 
and a long incubation time. Even if we could shrink the development of such a 
container to a year (which I doubt) and we are successful (which is by no 
means guarenteed) we have still left our users in the lurch for a long time 
and gone back to the eternal alpha that Avalon was always in. We worked a 
long time to finally get something released stable and I do not think we 
should abandon our users for a pipe dream.

If the new uber container actually occurs and solves the problems it proposes 
to solve then we could perhaps start moving towards it then. Until such a 
time I think we should be mindful of our users - some of whom have risked a 
lot to trust our development.
