The problem since we "adopted" the xbean+Spring stuff is now pretty 
apparent. These two things gathered just plain sucks.

We definitively have to step back a little, and come back to some 
srrious - although boring - solution. What we have is silly, painfull, 
error-prone, and make the users wondering if we are simply trying to 
have fun endorsing the latest funny buzz around there.

I already ranted about this xbean+spring stuff, but now, I consider that 
was not rant. I was soft. This couple will just produce monsters, not 
babies... We must practice abortion asap, and keep the parent either 
separated or killed !!!

Seriously, we can't keep this situation as is for 2.0.
