I was thinking of creating a ".core" -package, where we would put  
most of our top-level classes with the exception of Release and  
possibly a new WikiEngineFactory.  That would include  
WikiContextFactory as well, IMHO.

I think a subpackage of .ui is probably a good idea.  "ui.stripes"?

I think those are fine.  Let's put them in the ui.stripes -package.

Let's try it out.  We have freedom now since we've decided to break  
the API - the first place does not have to be the final one...

I was also planning to start using org.apache.jspwiki.api -classes  
(starting with WikiException and derivatives) from now on out.  Is  
that OK with everyone?  I haven't seen any comments on the API, so  
either ya'll think they're fine or that nobody has really looked...
