 From a purely practical perspective, its probably easiest to start  
off with the 2 codebases imported (when the IP & software grants are  
all done) into separate modules then over time we can see how best to  
merge things & share stuff, moving shared stuff maybe into separate  
modules for easier reuse. Going from 2 codebases to 1 is gonna take a  
while. Just like XMLBeans v JaxMe v Xerces or Struts v Tapestry v  
Cocoon v Turbine; we don't have to mandate that everything be merged  
into one single unified codebase up front - we can work at it  
incrementally over time and see how much reuse we can get; it might  
be parts remain diverged as there's not always one size fits all.
