It *might* work... I'd want to experiment a bit before I was comfortable 
with this idea.

As for symbolic link of jakarta-alexandria/proposal/gump to 
jakarta-gump, yes it does provide a sort of proof of concept on the 
idea.  I did that on a lark as I still have machines updating from the 
old location.  After a brief transition period, I plan to shut this down.

The *only* downside I have seen to date is that the commit messages are 
routed based on which repository you checked the file out on.  This, 
IMHO, is quite acceptable.
