Both good points.  Lets get the maven namespace fixed in 2.0.  Thanks
in advance for help making sure we don't screw that up.

Regarding package renaming, there are very few backward incompatible
changes lined up for 2.0, and all of the proposed 1.5-dependent stuff
is new, so I am hesistant to do a wholesale change.  What would be the
problem with renaming only packages that contain classes with
incompatible changes?
