I don't think you have to answer this ( at least not on tomcat-dev ) :-)

I love Avalon's concept and idea, but I'm not at all happy with the
implementation. It is too heavy and 'framework-ish', and the fact that it
is a JSR or not doesn't change this. The 'component loading' service/idea
is just great, but configuration, logging, etc are not that good idea.

But of course, I agree that tomcat should be usable with Avalon - after
all that's one of our goals, to be 'embedable' and 'modular'.
