We can make a Gump descriptor for each project, but it won't help the 
build. I kept it together to make it easier to make a single buildfile 
manage it. If we start splitting it, it will be a pain to manage. Take 
for example (again) Avalon Excalibur.

I've played with these permutations quite a lot, and I've come to the 
conclusion that each CVS module must have one descriptor.

When the blocks will be indipendent, and that means have their own set 
of committers, life, releases, etc, then we can make a separate descriptor.

If you build all together, keep a single descriptor. If you build based 
on released versions, you can split.
