Talking about the introduction page, a few do/don't do are a bit odd
from my point of view:

* in the “Carrying dependencies” sample, public inheritance is replaced
by composition. Unless the code was badly broken in the first place (ie,
using public inheritance where it shouldn't have), it's very unlikely
that such a change can usually be applied. A possible fix would at least
be to switch to private inheritance in the initial (bad) code.
* in the “Carrying injector” sample, it is stated that “Service locator
is consider to be an anti-pattern because its instance is required to be
passed as the ONLY constructor parameter into all constructors”. I don't
know where that statement come from – and some code bases i've worked
with disagree with that statement. There's much to say about the service
locator pattern, though, and DI is probably a better alternative, but i
need to be convinced on solid bases.
* the “Manual DI - Wiring Mess” is the part i'd like to see expanded.
Typically, with the given example, i don't get a clue on how i replace
“view” with another implementation. Which, as far as i'm concerned, is
the strong point of DI. The mocks provider sample gives an answer, IMHO
it ought to be in the introduction.

Besides, the library looks indeed very interesting.
