Separating Content Management & Content Delivery

Topics: Core, Customizing Orchard

Hi,

I am working on a project that aims at separating the Content Management and the content delivery functionality of Orchard.

The challenge is mainly with the content delivery functionality. I need some guidance on how I can accomplish this. 

1) The content delivery application shouldn't be a module, rather a stand alone MVC application with  a handle on the Orchard content manager through the dependency injection framework provided by Orchard

2) Basically, the content delivery application shouldnt contain any part of the Core CMS functionality.

I have been trying to get the Orchard.Web project to act as the standalone application, without the modules and core projects. Can some one guide me as to how i can get a handle on the Orchard IContentManager or the IOrchardServices without the modules and core stuff of Orchard?

Thanks
