Hmm, ok we currently have a o.a.c.environment.Context which
has some functions from the servlet context object and attributes.
Currently these attributes are not really used.

And we have o.a.a.context.Context which is a map containing
many important information about the application.

For me it seems that two contexts is one too much :)
So, why not combining those somehow. Currently you get the
o.a.c.e.Context from the avalon context.

Now, we could for example store all information we currently
have in the avalon context into the environment context
and using the environment context as the only reference
for application information. If you need this context
you can get it from the avalon context. The avalon context
only contains this single piece of information (of course
for compatibility we let everything remain there as 
Then in flow, cocoon.context works perfect.
