FYI, the Avalon Frameworks have been stable, but Avalon container
development has gone through a period of change.  As of very recently, there
appears to be a hard won consensus on a single extensible codebase.  At its
core, that codebase focuses on how to build containers (sort of a Service
Provider interface for containers).  Actual containers are built on that
model, exposing the behaviors and interfaces necessary for components.

Sounds reasonable.  What do you feel Geronimo will need?
