I still did not manage to look at all the changes, but I have some 
questions regarding metadata.xml:

- Why is it necessary to use version numbers from VERSION.txt? AFAICS it 
does not make much sense to keep profile version numbers in sync with 
product version numbers. New profiles should have an explicit version in 
metadata.xml, old profiles can use '0' as version number. No?

- Why uses ProfileMetadata the old ImportConfiguratorBase? 
ImportConfiguratorBase is just not deprecated because GenericSetup still 
uses it in some places. But the goal was to get rid of it, not to add 
new files that depend on it.

- Why is exporting metadata.xml not supported?

- How are profile dependencies specified, where are they used?

Cheers, Yuppie
