uiOptions (empty) (renamed to fluid.prefs.prefsEditor)
panel (base grade)
enactor (base grade)
url utilities
fatPanel grade (renamed to separatedPanel)
iFramePanel
SeparatedPanel

starter enactors

UIOptions: Our Instance of a Prefs Editor
4 lines of code

Things To Deprecate
----------------------------
demands
non-autoInit components (including initSubcomponents, initFunctions, etc.)
old super applier (replaced by model relay)
guards, postguards (replaced by model relay)
FSS
initDependents
lifecycle functions
old-style uploader API
old-style reorderer API
old-style IoC configuration such as fluid.COMPONENT_OPTIONS, @0, @1 syntax, etc.
workarounds/hacks for old browsers
Flash support
THE RENDERER
RADICAL STYLEZ (maybe, maybe!)
renaming fluid.defaults
no more distinction between options and other stuff--eliminate custom signatures and options


Things to remove now
-----------------------------
bgiframe
json2.js
ariaTabs (should be replaced by the one from jQuery UI)
tooltip (should be replaced by the one from jQuery UI)

Roadmap for new base clases:
fluid.modelRelayComponent will be introduced in 1.5 - components will gradually migrate from fluid.modelComponent to fluid.modelRelayComponent. fluid.modelComponent itself will be abolished in 2.0, and fluid.modelRelayComponent will be renamed to fluid.modelComponent
"fluid.newRendererComponent" will appear in 2.0 beta, "fluid.rendererComponent" will be renamed to "fluid.oldRendererComponent". For 2.0 release, fluid.newRendererComponent will be renamed to fluid.rendererComponent


Proposed hierarchy for 2.0
src/
    lib/
    framework/
        preferences/
    components/
        one folder per component
tests/
    framework/
        preferences/
    components/
demos/
    showcase/
        one folder per component
    integration/
    manual/
