>Cool, ta, I will play, this is down for James 3 so I can wait a wee while for a release.

the MailetContext and hide it from Mailets, so removing a bunch of Avalon and James classes
would be nice too.

Avalon-Framework is designed for hosted components.  You know my 
feelings on this...

You really should look at EOB.  It has a .eob mechanism for hosted comps 
as applications.

Which can still happen with a dependance on Avalon-Framework...
