I would prefer the use of an external wiring library instead of writing
our own. JAMES is complex enough to require some complex wiring and
writing our own library is not the right thing to do IMHO.

As far as we can go there's no way to ship only container-agnostic
components. One way or another we'll have to use a container and to put
wiring/configuration there and the wiring/configuration is part of the
distribution. We have to choose a container and use its facilities. One
thing we should do is to avoid to put container stuff all around our
code, but we should not write our own container to avoid being
container-specific.
