I think a subproject is a possibility. I don't know much about how 
Apache subprojects work. My hope would be that contributions to Derby 
Lite would also be contributions to Derby. So, for instance, if a Derby 
Lite user added backward scanning of btrees, then it would be great if 
that work were checked into Derby Classic so that someone working in the 
Derby SQL interpreter could take advantage of it.
