Subject Re: c3 pipelines (was Re: [jira] [Commented] (COCOON3-96) Add support for "internal-only" pipelines)

IIRC it was juste that configure() was brought by Avalon and setup() by 
the SitemapComponent interface
At that time, you could setup a non-Configurable sitemap component.

But you're definitely right, a single setup() method with some 
configuration parameters is enough.

setup() either. I'm pretty sure I asked the same in a old thread. Even for component developers
this leads to confusion.  Nice to see some good discussion being started !!
