Another thing to think about is that we also want to position ourselves to support JAR 168
portlets before long. 

Is there going to be a relationship between portlets and modules? Are we going to be able
to use modules as portlets? Or are we going to be able to have modules within portlets?

I haven't looked at Joe's code yet, but it would be very helpful if we could manufacture configurations
in a testing environment, without having to read them in from an XML file. Once we have contexts
in the signatures, it will be easy to test the core components independently.
