No.  The project is called "harmony", so that should be the "root" of 
all our java code in the project.  That's the root of our namespace.

We might add a token after "harmony" like "classlib" (because I think we 
should segment the namespace that way - we don't have to now, but it's a 
minor bit of futureproofing that the tools hide from us anyway....

and then if there really is a compelling reason to separate out the 
support for java.s and javax.s, do something else.  (I'm not convinced 
we need to)

Note that


should be ruled out, as  'security' is the Harmony class library module 
name, and that module supports both j.s and  jx.s  (tell me if people 
aren't grokking the shorthand...) and therefore is our "root node" in 
the package tree for the security package.
