not so sure (hence silent). I am wondering what the risk/benefit ratio 
is, where the benefit is AIUI small when you have a seperate interface 
jar already, and the risk is in such a thing breaking something 
somewhere, and it could be considerable. Surely, we'll have a circular 
dependency issue for a long time as we have to keep the classes in 
avalon-framework (probably as wrappers around the moved classes) as well 
for compatibility.

For changes like this to something as core framework, I prefer "vote 
first, act later" over "just do it", as a change like this could have an 
impact on quite a few projects, and a vote is a good means to draw
