I think several parts of Turbine (or maybe all of it) are Avalon based. 
 Maven will soon be Avalon based as well, using Plexus.  I think there 
seems to be a case for an Avalon Commons, but isn't Excalibur supposed 
to be something like that already?  Also, isn't there some ability to 
break out common functionality into a Jakarta Commons component with an 
Avalon Component wrapper?  Jason Van Zyl did something similar already 
with the Apache XML-RPC library and his Plexus XML-RPC service.
