Imagine I want to use an AcmeDatabaseGenerator in my sitemap;
AcmeDatabaseGenerator is Composable and uses an AcmeCoolComponent.

Current Scenario
To "install" it I need to add AcmeCoolComponent to cocoon.xconf and
AcmeDatabaseGenerator in the sitemap.
It's not immediate.

Possible scenario
I drop in an AcmeDatabaseGenerator.xar in the /components directory and it
gets installed automatically.
The AcmeCoolComponent is also available to other Components.

IIRC Phoenix has this mechanism. I think it increases easiness for
developers a lot.
