Sure, but we should try to avoid this, i.e. use the container in the 
most standard way as far as possible, to avoid users to learn yet 
another config file format. However, extending the 
XMLBeanDefinitionReader may be a good solution to feed Avalon components 
that needs them with a Configuration object.
