Of course we do not have a common understanding. We have old farts like 
me comfortable with the Avalon way :-) that say "I know it well and it 
has worked for years, so why should I change", younger ones familiar 
with Spring but not so with Avalon. We have a friendly community with no 
dictators but probably in this case one would be handy to say "we go the 
XYZ way" ;-)
