You and I are also Avalon committers but most of the Cocoon devs aren't.

The inputmodule community is here, don't break it just for the sake of 
conceptual purity. Let's continue here and eventually move them later to 
Avalon (if ever) when they are stable.

Moving components to Avalon CVS has already upset some on different 
projects, because it brings to lack of control. James committers are 
very frequently upset by the fact that they have to rely on components 
they have difficulty in controlling.

Avalon Components IMNSHO should reside in a sort-of Avalon-Commons 
shared CVS; also some Turbine folks seemed interested, and we may have 
it someday, but for now moving all Avalon components in the "Avalon 
safe" is not the way to go.
