Yes, it's time, but our avalon container is not good enough for that and 
avalon-dev is currently a big community mess.

I'm concerned. I really am. I'm about to fork and write my own avalon 
container for cocoon blocks and screw them.... this project can't wait 
another 6 months for a serious container to happen.

the block pressure will tear us apart.

We already have a pretty detailed plan of action.

Look for "cocoon blocks" in the wiki.

But implementing it is hard, not technologically but politically. It 
must be done right from a community dynamic perspective and we have to 
get out with Cocoon 2.1 first.

But I'm wide open to suggestions on how to move this forward.
