I was planning a merge once I get it working, so that people don't  
have to deal with (too) broken code.

But it's still not usable.

Release.  The only reason we don't want to rename now is that merging  
back the JCR branch would be a pain.

Hm?  We can do that?

The rename is not the big problem; the API is the big problem.  Which  
is why I am worried that nobody else has commented on it...

Just in case people haven't yet realized this - for plugin and filter  
writes, org.apache.jspwiki.api.* is the one you can rely on.   
Everything else *we will consider breakable without notice*.

(And for template writers, org.apache.jspwiki.tags.*, but there's no  
reason to change them, really. So they're already pretty stable.)
