Either I'm having a serious deja-vu here, or this is really similar to 
whatever we had ages ago in avalon 3.0a3 (see NamedComponentManager)! 
Which is good, I still have someone running on avalon 3.0 - it will make 
migration easier...

If we to start migration to Fortress in 2.2..... I don't see a need in 
avoiding this reformatting. If we do it in 2.1.2, then yes, we should 
support old config syntax.
