Good question - I think noone is able to answer that one.

Yeah, and I really don't understand this - I (and others) propose small
but simple steps to a) improve using Cocoon and b) provide a smooth
migration path. But even if these proposals do not include heavy
refactoring and do not come with problems, people are blocking it and
always point to the "we need a rewrite". Then if people are suggestion,
let's rewrite, the same people (and others) complain that that is
currently not an option. So in the end we are doomed.

So I'm coming back to my idea, is anyone against adding constructor
injection to ECM++ or at least make it pluggable so I can add it for my
own projects? The change adds only a feature while maintaining 100%
compatibility.
