Why `AbstractContainer::configure()` is used outside of container



Why AbstractContainer::configure() is used in so many places? It not only creates direct dependency on DI package, but also introduces surprising and tricky behavior - AbstractContainer::configure() supports calling methods via config array. Maybe it’s just me, but I would not expect such behavior when using $config and it may lead to overusing this feature and potentially create security issues.

That is correct. Will be removed before release.

Agree with plain config array with scalar or string values.

But for array that contain references descendant object config is essential.
