It is a huge job to convert everything, so the only realistic option is 
to do it incrementally, a couple of components at the time, when people 
have time and feel like it. If we try to syncronize it with releases we 
will never get it done.

I don't know if we have discussed any policy for how to Springify the 
beans, but you will find many examples in the core. What I would propose 
is that for sitemap components, we keep and depricate the Avalon 
configurability and life cycle interfaces even if we Springify them. 
You'll find a number of examples on how this can be done in 
cocoon-pipeline-components. As users probably have tons of sitemap 
component configurations in their sitemaps, I think it is reasonable to 
give them some time to change.

For non-sitemap components we have just removed the Avalon stuff.
