Defintiely +1.  But an even stronger +1 on new commons components for "pure data
beans" that represent the data of common XML document formats like RSS.  For
RSS itself, such a set of beans (which covered a reasonable attempt at a union
of all the variant formats, plus a way to plug in arbitrary extension) would be
*broadly* useful in both client and server applications that manipulate
RSS-type data, far beyond the particular scenario of parsing XML->beans (which
is what the Digester example does) and the reverse beans->XML direction (which
is what an example in Betwixt does).

Attempts to maintain history in this manner (moving ,v files) does not strike me
as the right approach ... the original files will still be in the attic after
you "cvs delete" them, and the initial commit to the new directory can include
a pointer to where to review the prior history.
