Well, first of all the CompositionEvents are something very new, couple of 
weeks I think, and is not completely ironed out.
Not discussing what happens exactly (which I think there are some bugs), but 
what _should_ happen.

In an EventDriven programming model, you should never be required to traverse 
or search for information. You show some interest by registering a listener, 
and stuff then comes to you.
Now, that would mean in our case that if a container with loads of components 
in it is added to the model, it should be seen as 1 ContainerAdded event + 1 
ComponentAdded event for each component in the container.

We'll try to make this a reality, if it is not so now (I think it is not so 
for removal, at the moment).

As for the strategy, let's investigate the alternatives.
The good side is that I am pretty interested in getting this integrated, and I 
think Stephen also appreciate your work here, so we will do what it takes to 
bring this inline with the rest of Merlin.
