Ah, ok, I wasn't very clear :)

First, I think we should use the interfaces (SourceResolver and SOurce)
from excalibur. Apart from the package name they have no dependency
to anything else at Avalon. And I think using these interfaces is
the key concern.

Then most of the implementation is "avalon free" as well.

Third, the package will be put to sleep over at avalon anyway as it
doesn't comply to the Merlin component standard, so it makes sense
to take over this source anyway.
