Right, a pure embedded mode (no container) guide, where you just add  
in a servlet and programatically register your beans should be easy,  
as well as a simple import/custom xml for spring2. Other containers  
can likewise be supported. xbean is just another container. My  
argument is that xbean should not be the 'this is the simplest way'  
solution, where simplest is viewed as a third party non-mainstream
