Its not so much the difficulty of writing the kernel - I actually enjoy that 
bit :) It is more the bulk it adds to myrmidon. It just seems like "too 
much". Oh well

BTW what do you think of putting together a micro release over the next week 
or so? The release would just include aut/api/myrmidon/framework. The main 
reason for this is that there is a few people who are using the container 
part to build other stuff and are getting sick of us "evolving" the API ;)

I will finish the event manager stuff and move projectlistener to the 
framework project (and probably axe aspect manager - doh!). Is there anything 
you need to do? ie What do we need to stabilize it all and make sure 
everything sorta works.

I will have a bash at documenting types/roles and how they interact with the 
system. I may also get around to converter stuff if I get time (not sure). 

Anything else that needs doing?
