Please don't. I have been fairly open about what I am going to be doing over 
next bit. 

I am moving all the code out that I am sole author for. I am encouraging 
others to do the same - I hope within a few months that most of avalon-apps 
will be gone and significant portions of excalibur will also be gone. Paul 
has already moved some stuff out, as has Eung-Ju and I. I have been poking 
the other Peter to do the same.

In time I will start poking some of the Cocoon peeps to migrate some of the 
Cocoon originated stuff back into Cocoon - much better for Cocoon that way 
and hopefully better for Avalon.

Post fortress release I intend to attempt to get framework cleaned up; marker 
interfaces, component.*, *Selectors deprecated. Provide a solid ECM-> 
fortress migration path and finally start process of dumping the crappy code 
we have been carrying for ages.

At the same time I have consolidating Phoenix. Basically means getting unit 
tests solid and trying to get 95% test coverage on all the supporting 
libraries. I also plan to make it more agile by reducing dependencies, 
reducing duplication, internal decoupling and so forth.

In the end I want to see the majority of cornerstone/excalibur/apps gone. 
Framework to be half deprecated, docs to be decrufted. Hows that for sneaky?
