I don't think that this direction is incompatible with another target, 
which is a packaged version (and this is the target I was talking about 
in this JIRA)

Make people happy seems important to me :)
Just consider that micro-decision (like create an hundred of jars for 
internal reasons) should not be opposed to macro-decision (packaging the 
server in a couple of jars for people hapiness), but it's obviously 
another task for us (vreating the pckages, managing them, ect...).

I personnaly think that delivering a server composed of an hundred of 
jars for technical reasons like OSGI, and to impose this choice to user 
to be just a wrong move. Not that OSGI is the bad direction, but users 
should not be aware of that if they don't want to be.

Of course, I just express my very own opinion here, not the project 
opinion. We will have to discuss this point, for sure !
