Are the interfaces different each time, or is there a set of N interfaces 
with N instances that always occur?

If the latter, just define bindings like this:

       child1 = binding.Require("This is where child 1 goes", 

And set the 'child1' attribute at runtime.

If you don't know what interfaces you're using until runtime, then you need 
to have the parent subclass 'binding.Configurable' instead of 
'binding.Component', and you'll use the parent's
'registerProvider()' method to register child components.  See 
'peak.config.interfaces' for more details, especially IConfigurable and IRule.
