Yes and no.
Avalon containers provide their own "Confiuguration" objects to the
contained application.
This means that the config.xml is a container file  and not an application
file and IS container specific.
We include a "phoenix specific" config.xml that works fine when read by
phoenix "NamespacedSAXConfigurationParser".
Loom use the same name "config.xml" and the same notation to configure the
applications but use it's own jar to handle the parsing.
This is not configurable and we would have to change the loom source code to
alter it.

phoenix-trunk is also working for me now that Loom helped me fixing
james.sar incompatibilities.
And we don't want to distribute an application that "works for me": we want
to distribute an application that just works for most people.

I don't know if LOOM is better than phoenix-trunk.

I started this discussion with a question "should we move to loom?" and I
haven't made a proposal because I need a more clear scenario to make any
proposal around this issue.

I just "currently" think that the space issue is blocking. I don't
understand why most of the replies have been around the <data-source> issue
and the fact the loom is dead that IMHO are non-existing issues, but the
whole thread is helping me.
