I really understand your concern, but we feel that all JSR 168
related code should go into the same "directory space" and that
is currently the portal block.

Sooner or later, things might change a little bit here and perhaps
the portal block will move to the portals TLP (or not). And perhaps
the portal block will build two jar files, one for the environment
and one for the portal.
But I think these are two different things: where the code is
placed best and what the result of a build is.

I can only try to promise that this will change sometime in the
next weeks/months.

Now, this doesn't belong to the core. Not everyone needs a portlet
environment and as the portlet environment requires the portlet api
as a jar, we want to keep the core clean of that.
