Agreed. In addition to jcr-rmi and textfilters I think we should consider also
the jdbc pm, the jca connector, the webdav layer and jcr-server.

After experimenting with multiproject in the summer I believe it would 
be easier
and cleaner to work with one main project and use subprojects only when
necessary. It seems like the multiproject model makes best sense for projects
like Maven that contain a large number of independent components that share a
common code and documentation layout.

I'd also prefer having all the released stuff contained in one 
directory so that
it'll be easy and clean to eventually just copy that into the JACKRABBIT_1_0
tag. We should therefore probably move the graduated contrib projects to the
existing modules directory. Some of the contribs (like db-persistence and
textfilters) wouldn't even need their own module directories as they should be
fully integrated with Jackrabbit. Other modules could either keep their
separate source trees or get their code moved within the main source tree and
use a mechanism like the commons module to optionally build an independent jar
