No, I wasn't advocating groups of specs.  Was more saying "let's just  
delete these specs from trunk" or otherwise get rid of them and leave  
only the specs that change and do the one version number thing.  The  
code is tagged, so it's safe.  Perhaps the issue is that we don't  
need these unchanging modules in trunk in the first place.  And just  
so you don't think I'm ignoring pom changes, the poms for the modules  
I listed are stable to (no deps on anything that's changed).
