> This ticket is a parent of several other tickets, under which we can discuss the merits
of separating or grouping particular modules into more or fewer maven projects. Here's a list
of pros and cons:
> h6. Pros:
> * Explicit modularity encourages reuse outside of Accumulo.
> * Smaller projects encourage participation in coding project-local features.
> * Projects like the shell and the monitor can be exemplars for new projects or applications
built on top of Accumulo.
> * Separating projects forces use of publicly accessible APIs instead of custom connections.
This is a form of dogfooding, and helps code quality.
> h6. Cons:
> * More projects means more maven configuration, particularly in downstream projects that
are dependent on multiple projects.
> * Coding features across projects might be harder to comprehend and to test.
> * In the extreme case, we may see public API bloat in order to support too diverse a
set of projects.
