> Background
> ----------------
> James uses the Phoenix container and the Avalon Framework. 
> Unfortunately, both are now dead projects. This is now starting to cause maintainability
issues. Realistically, James will need to start maintaining a fork or accept that some features
will not work correctly in this container.  It is also hard to recruit developers willing
to learn these obsolete technologies.
> Both Avalon and Phoenix take intrusive approaches to IoC. Avalon imposes coupling to
a number of lifecycle interfaces. Phoenix requires a proliferation of finely grained internal
> However, these components have many advantages. They are now well tested and debugged.
Users of James (as opposed to developers) seem happy with them.
