Same here.

I'd call them sub-frameworks. Both provide setup steps for the main 
framework. Nevertheless I agree that one sub-framework for both tasks 
should be enough. They both solve very similar problems with different 
design decisions and implementations.

The current situation has historical reasons: Tres worked on the content 
handler and I worked on the configuration handlers. We never managed to 
discuss our different approaches and to agree on a common sub-framework.

I'm not happy with this, but IMHO there are more important issues to 
resolve in GenericSetup.
