You guessed wrong.

It would not make sence here - the focuss of the team is on distributed 
computing - not component or service management.

Usage of avalon framework (and excalibur) is very much as a client with 
respect to the core ORB and services (over on SF).  The content here 
(aside from a couple of sub-packages) is much more focussed on container 
enablement.  Like I said - there is some rationalization that needs to 
happen as part of the current OpenORB/Apache Board process.
