Grek, I see the problem - and I share Vadim's concerns about the 
EnvironmentChanger approach. Though I can imagine the scopes as possible 
solution I think this might be topic worth to be discussed. Could you 
therefore please start a new thread (the topic of this one made me 
ignoring it up to now) outlining the problem, what exactly has changed 
between 2.1 and 2.2 (as far as I understand it the parameters were per 
component instance) and possible solutions? The implementation of this 
part seem to be rather important to me.
