I'm all for that too! +1

One of the strenghts of Castle Microkernel is that it is only focused in 
being a inversion of control container. Anything else comes in the form of 
facilities - yes the word was borrowed from merlin. This approach lead us to 
a small code base, easy to grasp and more focused on extensions points. The 
challenge that arises is how to compose extensions, chaining them, but that 
was also nicely addressed in castle microkernel eventually :-)

And what do you think? Shall we start our little monster experimentation 
from there or start a new monster altogether? ;-)

I'd rather go with a new thing, just because I - and possible others - need 
to grasp the Java 1.5 from the start... :-\
