I love this idea. I haven't yet tried to set up my mina objects with 
Spring, except for my ProtocolHandler.
But if I understand it correctly, these FactoryBeans will depend on 
Spring interfaces.
Trustin, that's probably why you want to postpone it until MINA is 
multi-project ?

Wouldn't it be much easier if we make the relevant mina classes 
Dependency Injection friendly ?
without depending on spring (after all that's the idea behind DI).

And people using other DI frameworks would also appreciate it.
Or is this too much work ?
