Thank you David for the summary.  I thought "modular build"  meant 
adding more jars,  so it was good to have that cleared  With Approach 1
I personally am not too keen on the new ordering requirements,  testing
requirements, or the potential for regression with the versioning scheme.

For the USER EXPERIENCE  for either approach, how much  growth do you
anticipate in the client due to code sharing  with the first round of
what you want to share and a guesstimate of how big it might get if we
utilize all that you think the client should use from  the engine?   
The earlier thread on the size of the common jar file
made it sound significant.
