Is Bill Burke aware of this? (These types of things are a PITA, as people may not closely follow the clustering forum, and if you post on EJB3, the clustering people may not see it).
Other than that, sounds good.
Since 4.0.4CR2 is almost out, the remaining issue is if we need to backport any ejb3 code before GA. If needed, I can help out on this front.
Not sure what you meant here; is this a separate topic or related to your proposed refactor?
Yes, I have sent him private email to make sure. :-) I have thought about cross-posting it to ejb3 but don't know a way to do.
What I meant was if we need to do another backport of ejb3 to 4.0.4GA in the next two weeks or say, then we need to make sure that we don't port these changes back since this would require JBossCache1.3.
