In many apache projects the sandbox is not just a 'playground', it's a place for preparing
projects for inclusion in a release, either in the main project or as an independent library.
 Then I think it's a good idea to rename contrib to sandbox and move out those projects that
are candidates to be included in the first release. Creating a sandbox will give users a better
idea of the current state of each subproject.

Well, I'm not sure whether each subproject should have its own release cycle. It might lead
to fiefdoms and lack of support in some subprojects. I mean that if each subproject has its
own release cycle the maintainer of project A wouldn't care about fixing bugs of project B.
I prefer a relasease that include the core and subprojects, see option A) below. 
Note that it doesn't mean that it will be distributed as a single jar, a distribution layout
may include many libraries.

A binary distribution 

regarding svn layout I prefer to keep it as standard as possible 
see http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch05s04.html#svn-ch-5-sect-6.1
With unified release cycle

And if there's consensus for independent relase cycles, I think we should keep it standard
