fluid.initRendererComponent options: any 'unsupported'?

I think everything under "rendererFnOptions" should be considered 
unsupported. In general I think we want to reorganise this options set 
to that the layout makes more sense to users and they don't have to 
necessarily hunt around in substructures.
Yes, "model" is not necessary on rendererOptions since everything is 
governed by the top level model, and similarly for elements of 
"expanderOptions", this doesn't need to be configured more than once.

I guess I have *some* concerns about the stability of all of this API 
since it has not really been through much review and consideration. For 
example the "selectors", "repeatingSelectors" and "selectorsToIgnore" 
pattern worries me a bit as well - I presume we are designating this 
entire function as part of "sneak peek" in any case, since it is all new 
in this release.
