Fantastic.  Good luck with the refactor.  I'll help if needed.

One thought off the top of my head is relating to the out bound
re-writter.  Our development team was turned off to the outbound
re-writter since we already have a re-writter, site-mesh, and we worried
about performance in having two.  So one thought of improvement could be
making siteMesh work with CSRFGuard to insert the Tokens.  I haven't put
too much thought into it, just throwing it out there for consideration.
