Gump descriptor is made to handle these interdependencies, in a similar 
way to which Excalibur does it.

Basically all these "modules" are defined as projects, and should be 
declared as such.
I'm working on it on a simplified Gump ant task-target, and maybe it 
would be the best thing to do.

As for the branch, it's evident that it will not be done, so I will 
continue to help on a clear evolutive path, with minimal refactorings.

I think that it's the best thing to do too now, the comments were very 
well done and insightful.


What about this:


I will put many components in Morphos, so we will have to see how we can 
interoperate from a project POV.
Any ideas?
