Subject Some more cleanup ...

Hi gang,

we have had an interesting discussion with Ersin lately, about how to 
use core-JNDI inside the SP interceptor. Let me explain what is the 
problem :

SP allow a user to define some function which has access to the data the 
server is storing. That's fine, but in order to guarantee the ease of 
use, we decided to expose those objects through JNDI (no need to learn 
about a new API, even if it's a better one ;).

Back in 1.5.4 (or was it 1.5.3?) we decided to move out of core the JNDI 
operations, and we created a module named core-jndi : superbe move, so far.

Now, the problem is that we can't use this core-jndi into the SP 
interceptor, simply because core-jndi depends on core, so we can't make 
the SP interceptor depends on core-jndi, it would create a circular 

The solution is pretty simple, though : the SP interceptor has nothing 
to do into core, we should create a new module for it (interceptor-sp).

At this point, we can also extend the idea to all the interceptors : 
make them modules, depending on core.

Thoughts ?

cordialement, regards,
Emmanuel L├ęcharny
