Although I salute most of Google's project(s) as great initiatives... I must say that another IoC framework seems a bit redundant considering that Spring is already mature and fully integrated in thousands of applications around the world.

What's next? A .NET replacement named .google?

Guice is not new. it has been almost two years it is out. Spring made a lot of catching up after Guice was released. it has advantages (speed, configuration, compile time safety etc.) over Spring. Spring is bloated. But if you are looking for a tiny IOC library, butterfly ( http://butterfly.jenkov.com/ ) is a good choice too.
