I see it different from Component because the sole reason for the interface 
is to define a group of tpes that can be defined in a build file - it has no 
other purpose. We certainly don't want arbitrary types to be definable like 
Cullers/Selectors/Conditions/etc - only things that make sense like FileSets, 
PatternSets, etc.

Anyways if you wouldn't mind waiting till next tuesday before doing anything 
that would be great. Deadline ends soon and thus will be able to look over 
all the stuff you have done ;)
