   Modularity is really one advantage of Harmony. However each coin has two
sides, as Mladen says, maybe a customized harmony might have trouble on
client's application due to lack of class. I think, in this stage, it is the
time to show our stability and compatibility with RI.
   Besides, we can tell our clients how harmony modules are organized, the
dependencies between them and how to customize harmony's bootstrap bundles.
Is there such a guide in our ducument?
   If no, i would like to add one on our wiki.
