OK, a quesiton.  Commons is about "beanlike" classes that have multiple 
reuse in servers (though client is not precluded).  Avalon-Excalibur is 
about reusable components that fit the IoC pattern, and in the context 
of Avalon are decorated at startup from XML configuration, to do this 
quite a few of them site of Avalon-Framework's componenet abstractions. 
 That a (my) simple view.

I've tried to code AltRMI so that is usable in the context of an XML 
configurable component env like Avalon-Phoenix.  It's quite easy if you 
<boredom-alert> rigidly separate interface and impl </boredom-alert>. 
 Of course I could have got it quite wrong...  Thus in my view AltRMI is 
beanlike but because of it's interface/impl separation, it can fit the 
Avalon-Phoenix env too.  I can't help feeling that I have forgotten 
about the needs of my Excalibur buddies.
