Maybe just call it "extensions" ?  This could be the root for
"standard extensions" that are produced by this project.  Some might
be app dev related. But we might have other standard extensions in the
future, e.g., a CMIS extension using Apache Chemistry.

Another question is how we think these extensions would be released?
As part of (or in sync with) and AOO release?  If so, we might want
this under the same trunk dir, so they can be easily tagged and
branched with the reset of the AOO release.  But if we see these
extensions as having an independent release cycle, not tied to AOO,
then maybe they have an independent SVN tree.
