Not only, we removed some of the deprecated component stuff in
2.2 (excalibur component selector etc.)

Here on my PC :) Now, seriously, I already started implementing
the virtual sitemap components (according to the discussions months
ago) some weeks ago, but failed due to the problems with Fortress :(
I'm currently trying to get a first version up and running by
wednesday (hopefully). Then I will commit the changes and
we can continue developing here (= our CVS).

Sure, but I hope to fit everthing into a single class which should
make moving to another container much easier (just replace this
one class, and that's it). That's currently not possible.

Yes, exactly - I won't do much in this area, but will try to
make it easier to plug something into the sitemap processor
as the first step.

:) - Ehm,...,hmm....hmmmm....ok, perhaps not with all
features, but some of them :)

More soon.
