A week of symfony #191 (23->29 August 2010)

Symfony2 added this week the new ControllerInterface and BaseController classes. The profiler was refactored and the web development toolbar was temporally removed (it will be included in the upcoming WebProfilerBundle). Lastly, the exception management was refactored once more and the event listeners added a new priority parameter.
