Orchestra is the new Seam

Apache MyFaces announced the availability of Apache MyFaces Orchestra and it sounds like a real great integration tool:
JSF - Spring - JPA
Although they are not positioning it directly as a Seam killer (see Orchestra and Seam) IMO it is competing here. But Orchestra is doing some things better than Seam:
Leveraging the defacto standard Spring truly
Being open for other ORM solutions than JPA
Having an Apache Licence
Providing hooks for other web frameworks and not only JSF

Although I must admit, that I haven't used Seam yet I probably would rather choose Orchestra in my next JSF project. Still I wish both projects the best and it is good to have choice around and see common problems tackled.
