No, no, perhaps my explanations are not good - I don't know.

All I'm still trying to say is, that I would like support for
the avalon lifecycle interfaces. So, precisly, I want to have
support for:
LogEnabled, Contextualizable, Configurable, Parameterizable,
Serviceable, Intializable, Startable, Disposable, ThreadSafe
and Poolable. Nothing more.

I'm not against defining new interfaces - as long as we still
support the old ones. And I'm not against in loosing *some*
functionality if I'm using those interfaces from above.
Most of them are simple to support. The only one might be

There is no need to modify/update the avalon framework. We can
do our own thing but just support the old interfaces listed

So, I just want some kind of "legacy support".
