Just transforming the XML descriptor into a java class only eliminates the XML 
parsing, but still leaves the dynamic configuration.

As was noted, we don't need dynamic config on embedded devices (and if you 
do the controller will probably be powerful enough to accommodate more of 
the whole Avalon framework anyway).

It would be even more beneficial if we could come up with a way to pre-
configure the embedded container at compile-time (eg. pre-building config 
data structures that the container needs).  This would speed startup time even 
more, since the container would be instantiated "ready to rock 'n roll", with very 
little initialization required.
