I consider that to be a fairly significant distinction, too.  Reusable
components/services that follow that are containable vs utility classes.
Berin does not seem to be saying that they are going to be part of the same
package.  Nicola Ken made a similar merger back in November.  I am not sure
why, but since it comes up often, I'm interested to understand why.  Perhaps
it is the idea of cutting the number of perceived sub-projects in favor of
fewer, larger ones.
