Then you won't mind if I delete the current site and re-instate the old site
until we have a firm consensus on the versioning and framework
documentation, right?

I mean, it isn't a "technical" matter, right?

Stephen,

Last time, last warning:  drop the technical vs non-technical argument.

The *real* concerns here, as I understand them are:

1. Drop of Avalon Framework as a "product"
2. Lack of Framework 4.1 documentation or any "framework" documentation at 
   all (the only related docs are labeled under "component specification")
3. Concern and confusion about the constructor injection feature moving
   from a Merlin-specific enhancement to a general Avalon framework feature.
4. General concern and confusion about the role of the traditional framework
   library in Avalon's future.

There have been a number of solutions proposed:

1. Re-introduction of prior Avalon Framework documentation
2. If constructor injection is to be part of the general Avalon framework, 
   we should consider a major version jump to Avalon 5.0 out of respect for
   the various Avalon related projects.

Now, Stephen, would you please help everyone understand your concerns with
these proposals?  Please do not just dismiss them as "political" and thus
not worth your time or attention.
