I don't know that it would require a radical departure from what we're  
doing today. I'm not suggesting that we swizzle java package names  
(just the artifact names and poms).

It does make them more public, but I'm not sure that's a bad thing.  
IMO, it's more or less equivalent to what we're doing, currently, and  
fixes the silly build dependency issues that we've created for
