I think we should probably keep it around for the time being. Mainly as it 
easier to write a ProjectListener than it is to write a TaskListener. I was 
going to move it from api to framework (and concrete implementations to an 

However that requires that I finish moving the "Project" logic to a task 
(basically moving the stuff) and for that task to read properties from 
context so as to know which ProjectListener to instantiate.

Currently ProjectListener is instantiated in the container which means it 
would not be possible to "see" the ProjectListener if it was moved to 
framework right away (due to not being able to see Framework ClassLoader ... 
unless thats changed recently).

Anyways I am slowly working on it and have tried three different ways of doing 
ProjectTask. None look any good so I will try again on Monday.

Currently I am working on cleaning up some Avalon stuff and I am going to make 
a proposal so that the services we implement can be shared between Myrmidon, 
Phoenix, Merlin, Fortress, ECM etc. Hopefully that means we can rely on a 
bunch of ex-Cocoon stuff to do some of resource/xml/xslt/other magic.
