Please note that the comments express by Peter Donald should in no way 
be considered as a position of this community or in any way reflective 
of the community consensus. Irrespective of the actions of Peter Donald 
within or external to the Avalon Community, concrete and viable 
solutions exist today to protect any investment you make into the 
development of Phoenix components.  However, from a pragmatic 
development perspective, I would strongly recommend that you do not use 
interfaces or classes under the phoenix namespace - which simply means 
that you are building a portable component.  For more information 
concerning the development of a code base that is container independent 
- you can email requests to either the user or dev list.  For an example 
of a complex Phoenix style application that is maintaining container 
independence please take a look at the James project.

Cheers, Steve.
