To be honest, the hole ComponentManager discussion is too academic to me
and the fact that the discussion is long lasting enough prevents me to
comment further on. I really have to manage my time that I can spend on
Apache projects make me contributing on C2 only because I like it very
much and I want to make it a golden hammer (or a silver bullet at least
:). And I see the work we have to do in C2 now that
NamedComponentManager is nuked. 

Your proposals are ok so I don't have to comment on it. I know you would
like me to support Avalon as well because it is very fundamental but
this fundamentals at the point they have reached today is really not my

Well, I've made a comment today to show where my expectations are and
you'll see that they are at the point where I am looking for
implementation ease.

Whom you say that. I might be one of the most unpatient one and have C2
working with all those beautifull things we've discussed so far earlier
rather that later. But I know myself very well and I will go on slowly
to make the systems design well.

BTW: I had a RT about the issues we discussed under this thread. Listen:

Now that we need to have a hierachical SitemapComponentManager to make
C2 scalable and reduce verbosity in the sitemap why can't we expose that
SitemapComponentManager to Components and let them build the pipeline
(or parts of it) programmatically, he he :) :) :)
