I agree that decoupling is the right thing to do. On the other hand, 
decoupling also requires (a) some initial work, and (b) ongoing work to 
actually cut the separate releases.

It seems that the original problem that triggered this discussion was 
the amount of changes in trunk that were not present in a non-SNAPSHOT 
release. In the meantime, 2.5.0 *has* been released, and looking at the 
Jackrabbit release history, we've made releases every few months.

So is the trouble really worth it? Who volunteers to take case of this?

Best regards, Julian
