I think many people agree on the fact that we shouldn't depend on the 
Avalon products/containers anymore for Cocoon core operations. Some 
would like compatibility to run existing components as-is, which seems 
not trivial and shouldn't slow down the innovation train. OTOH, we 
cannot simply throw the good ideas behind Avalon's lifecycle management 
and container services away just because their method signatures carry 
the org.apache.avalon name, no?
