independent block builds are largely driven by the James dependencies.  
The FTP app introduces additional dependencies that we should perhaps 
address as part of the release plan.  If we can get to a point where we 
have the FTP app building against release blocks then I would be much 
more comfortable thinking about a possible home and ensuring that the 
relationships between the FTP app and cornerstone and well defined and
