@Configuration classes must currently have a public no-arg constructor (see javadoc) so we're relying on field/setter injection for (shared) collaborators. It would be nice if we would support constructor injection as well.

Juergen, as we discussed I am assigning that one back to you. Current master will allow a @Configuration class to use constructor injection as long as there is one constructor for the class. However, adding @Autowired in case of several constructors to teach the container the one to use won't work most probably.
