It seems there isn't enough interest in a new effort.  Everytime it is
brought up the folks who want a multi-container in Avalon environment
keep shouting it down.  I don't think we have enough developers for all
the containers we have now.  Something has to give, so I am not going
to press my opinion on a fresh start.
