What Avalon has been working towards is the general minimization of the 
concern that a component has with respect to the container that it is 
running within.  You will need to follow some rules - for example if you 
need access to resources (such as a working directory) then you need to 
use establish Avalon resource names and the @avalon javadoc tags.  
Providing you stick with the avalon contract you should not have any 
trouble running your component in other containers because they all 
claim to support Avalon.

If you need any help on the Merlin container just yell out and I can 
give you a hand - or if you want just post a message over on dev@avalon 
where a couple of hundred people are lurking around and amongst them is 
a lot of Merlin experience.

Cheers, Stephen.
