Please note: I did not make the above statement.  You quoted me quoting

We've already been through this many times, with Roller, Wicket and others,
so I'd go back and look to see how we handled it there --- and DOCUMENT IT.
And, yes, I agree that switching to the o.a. package space is a graduation
