Re: [EFM] EFM Requirements

  When I stated that the general notion of active
components floating around not being a good idea was
not based on the fact that most of the current
deployments are based on active components. We all
know that quite a lot of that is true, but we also
know the problems with managing and maintaining the
active components within the network is a hassle that
cannot be avoided in the active component model. 
  If it is possible to go with a all passive model,
which is getting to be a possibility with so much of
development and hashing out being done now, then it
becomes a easier deployment and over the long run,
maintainence issue. 
  Hope many agree with me on that, atleast the
individuals involved in deploying and maintaining the
networks would converge on it.
