I wouldn't dare say anything as controversial as that! :P

Thing is, if you build a container out of components, then you can put 
those components inside a container. Layered complexity, if you will. I 
can't see why you couldn't layer merlin's features on top of fortress. I 
also can't see why you can't do it the other way around.

I'm also not sure whether any of that is a good idea.

Keep in mind that the last time I tried and completely grok merlins 
internals was roughly three refactorings ago. It looks rather alien to 
me at the moment :D
