I spent more time with you than with Carsten, Ugo... Probably some 
people have a wider perception of live which helps them understanding 
better other people's position.

As I personally need the kernel, I will personally invest some more 
time into it, Cocoon or not (frankly, I could care less at this point).

I think that the current kernel code is wrong, as it's based on 
implementation of interfaces a-la Avalon, and you showed me a way to 
embrace the new idea of however-you-call-it component injection or POJO 
container. That's a must, and I want that in. Class loader isolation is 
another must.

And that said, I close this whole discussion as I think it's entirely 
pointless, I'll let Stefano re-iterate why class loading isolation is 
required to achieve blocks polymorphism.
