Hum, maybe with a few beers you'll be easier to convince ;)

I understand your point of view, you don't want to spent a lot of time
modularizing CM, dealing with parts of the code you are not comfortable
with and delaying the release of code you really care about. That's fair
and I agree this shouldn't be forced upon you.

The good news is you don't actually have to refactor *all* of CM as a
multi-module project right now. Start with a mostly empty branch
containing just a couple of modules you like and release them. And you
progressively bring more modules after each release from the old CM
branch. That's equivalent to the creation of multiple components (you
cherry-pick the code that you want, and release it when ready), and you
keep the lightweight management of a single component.
