Dont throw away the long names. If you are going to remove one version of the 
names then remove the short version as that s only a logical name while the 
Role name coresponds to interface classname. 

The only purpose of the shortname is to make writing deployment descriptors 
easier. It should not be used in our code at IMHO. I have been working on 
getting it removed from XDoclet tags and hopefully that will make things 
easier in future.

Sounds good to me. We could also add in meta-info for roles so that we can 
specify converter as a type that requires metainfo parameters "source" and

I disagree but as long as you put the long names back in there I can live with 
it ;)
