not sure what you mean. What I'm talking about can be seen in the idea  
project configuration for a module: instead of a spec subproject being  
listed as a "library" it will be listed as a "dependency".  As a  
result, the source code is available from the using module.  For  
instance, pressing F4 on a class name will find the source code, not  
decompile the binary.
