no worries. :)
Anyway, I would say that you should maintain the idea that
componentized objects should be made up of tightly-related components.
This isn't to say that the code of the components should necessarily
be intimately aware of the other components, but only that each
componentized object should have a pretty cohesive purpose in life.
(the same could be said about any "object", really).
One of the most common misuses of components that I see is to use them
for arbitrary 1:1 mappings. Indeed, "new hammer syndrome" often causes
people to forget about the fact that Python has attributes. :)
