And for the record, this whole thread is not an argument for and against 
different IoC styles. That is very academic, and something we at the Merlin 
camp fire, are moving away from.

I am just trying to highlight, that I don't think Spring and Pico are capable 
in their 'native' form to handle the hot-deploy and re-deployment of Cocoon 
blocks. And that is practical concern today for any effort of moving Cocoon 
away from ECM.

We (at Merlin) think that the fastest way forward, possibly with a huge degree 
of compatibility remained, is to base Cocoon on Merlin. But I also 
acknowledge the inert resistence against anything foreign, especially since 
the ECM choice has turned very inhibiting. Otoh, I don't think an in-house 
development at that time (or now) would have been so much more different, and 
the same problems would exist.
