Thanks for responding.  I read that section above, but I don't think it 
answers my question.  Or, maybe it does, just not the way I had hoped it 
would be answered.  My understanding is that you can 
reuse/modify/extend/etc. applications.  However, what I have in mind is 
not so much the integration of multiple applications as it is the 
integration of components into an application.  The difference being 
that my "blog component" doesn't have any kind of DB settings or global 
templates.  The configuration is minimal and only deals with things 
specific to the blog component (i.e. to allow coments or not).  However, 
the application level configuration contains DB settings, admin emails, 
etc. and also has global templates (i.e. the main templates that define 
the look and feel for the entire site).

So based on the documentation, I am certain I could extend an 
application if needed.  However, the real question I have is: can an 
application be made up of "pluggable" components that can be reused 
between applications?
