I guess I didn't explain myself well there at all Ken sorry. (I'm  
full of cold :( ).
I was just trying to say I'd rather see large, successful communities  
form first, then if need be parts of the project are split off if  
they become so wildly successful by themselves. So I was trying to  
show some examples of projects which maybe could have benefited from  
starting inside a larger, less granular project/community first  
rather than starting small and dwindling then being merged back  
together again due to inactivity.

e.g. both Geronimo and Jakarta Commons have a broad range of  
components inside them - many of which are reusable by themselves -  
in both cases the courser grained projects helped grow a larger more  
diverse community IMHO.
