+1000 to that! That what I was hoping to do.

Umm, I'm not up to speed on latest framework versions. We (Cocoon) are on 
avalon-framework 4.1.5.

Is there any backward incompatibility problems with 4.2, as related to 4.1.5?

If 4.2 is compatible with 4.1.5, I have no issues with that plan. If not, I'd 
suggest either to release bunch of components compiled against older stable 
version, and/or ensure that 4.2 is compatible with 4.1.5.
