Configuration Management Needs

(This is a slide show. You really won't get 
anything out of it unless you have a graphical web browser with graphics turned 
on.)

- Arbitrary code units must be able to be part of multiple target configurations. Enforcing a strict containment hierarchy limits reuse possibilities.

- Code unit semantics -- code modules must be first class objects, with appropriate behavior when needed. Such behavior should include (but not be limited to): what happens when I am made part of an image? What happens when an image containing me starts up? What happens to system resources, such as the Launcher, when I am present?

- Seamless integration with revision history -- versions of configurations must be available, with the same services provided to code unit versions.

- Support for conditional integration -- minor differences within one configuration, depending on the system environment. For instance, if Platform == #MessDos, load the code unit that holds the MS-DOS system interface.
