I am gald you brough that point up Emmanuel, and I'd like to know what 
the other guys think about this. What the best approach for us?

1. Build specific component and grow them to generic ones later on if 
there's a need.

2. Try to build generic components from the start

I would favor #1, so we concentrate our energies on our needs and we 
build the best API for what we have to do. We can then evaluate 
opportunities for extracting generic components.
