Still seems like a reinvent to me. Spring and other frameworks really offer a way of utilizing IoC along interoperating with other open source libraries. You dont have to use the whole lot, take what you need, add what you need. You wouldnt advocate writing your own logging API so I am not sure why you advocate implementation of your own IoC. On the learning curve aspect, employees coming into a firm(plus current) will clearly of had more exposure to Spring and other open source products than your inbuilt container, hence I feel the learning time will be getting upto spead with your inhouse software.
