Let's not make it too long ;P

The interface model will work just fine--esp. for interfaces where
there is something to pass in.

The attribute model would be best for the meta info, and I believe we
have already identified a fairly rich set of tags we can include.

We might reduce the number of interfaces that we have though.  For
example, we could merge Startable and Initializable to just have
Initializable and Disposable.  I.e. we should simplify to the easiest

I'm running out of time for today, so I might be able to get that stuff
back in to CVS tomorrow.  Yauheny, I believe you can do those changes.

That is the only type of exception that .NET has.

Anyway, with delegates, they would be used inside the container so they
may not have to be defined in the framework.
