Agree. IIRC, we also talked to have a new CTemplate generator, which 
could actually be the next-generation JXTG, working consistently with 
the refactored flow engine. Both being new components could concentrate 
on overall consistency without caring about backwards compatibility, 
whereas the existing classes whould have to ensure this compatibility.
