Beyond your note, what's motivating us to split it out? ;-)

Certainly makes sense to provide a module which is not dependent on  
GBeans (one day we'll get rid of them altogether...). That seems to  
be the important part of any splitting. This can occur with or  
without moving transactions to be separately releasable...

I certainly wouldn't advocate doing anything like this so close to a  
release or two...
