Well if it's just a matter of getting the tests running yeah it's not a big

In terms of the big picture I think all this code needs to be
reimplemented. The trigger and SP specifications need to be better defined.
Handling chain recursion issues needs to be reconsidered because we've
removed the InvocationStack I think or it's not being leveraged. Everything
should be gutted IMHO.

Yeah that's why I don't think it's worth the time to deal with it. We
should just focus on the TxN and OSGi side then reimplement it together.
Like a clean room implementation instead of fixing what's outdated. That's
just my opinion but I don't feel adamantly about it. Just think it's a
wasted effort considering the changes coming soon.
