Ugo, can you explain what exactly are the dependencies on Spring? My 
rather limited) understanding is, that we primarily would use Spring's 
BeanFactory. As the BeanFactory is:
a) designed to not introduce any dependency for your components
b) rather trivial to re-implement

for a start it would be the easiest to just drop in spring-core.jar. But 
we would have to make sure, that this cannot be interpreted as an 
invitation to introduce other dependencies.
