Sounds like a good idea; so we finish 2.1.9, freeze the development
completly there except for really important bug fixes, use 2.1.9 as the
start for 2.3 and port the spring based container over there. That
should be fairly easy. In fact we would make the current 2.2 core the
new core for 2.3. This should only take a short time and we can then
quickly release 2.3M1 - the only drawback I see is the build system
which would in that case be of course still Ant.
