I have a few comments suggestions on imports.
1. Where is the publically available DTD (not in the jar) fro SF 1.1.1 the old version is at http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans.dtd
2. The DTD requires you to have at least one bean I would like to be able to have a top level config file that just imports the fragments for the different components of my application.
3. Is it possible to append information to the hbernate config from bean config files that are imported, suppose I had a customer module with 2 beans and two hibernate config files and a products module with 3 beans and hibernate config files. I'd like to have one config file for each module with the bean and hibernate config and a master that I import them, but have a single hibernate session that has the config from both. This would allow me to mix and match my modules to build an application
