I know my dear, I know. They are not blocks *now*.
I used "blocks" simply because Blocks are pluggable and cleanly define
dependencies, while simple Avalon-framework Components are not. Since
Generators, Transformers, etc could be used like beans are in jars, and
since many of them use other Avalon Components, IMHO it could make sense to
give them a packaging with descriptor, ie Blocks.

Ok, then, we'll wait for SM(A)RT (Stefano Mazzocchi's Avalon-Cocoon Random
Thought) ;-)
