I've heard everyone use the word "sub project", which I don't see in
the options, but I guess I'm not entirely sure what that means anyway.
I'm getting the sense there isn't really a standard definition as, for
example, Jakarta and Web Services seem different.

Dims, I would be very appreciative if you can you give us an idea on
how does subprojects (how do you run them and how do you
add them).  Seems you have some good experience we might use.
