Either works and SVN suggest both as strategies (they have pro's and
con's for each but you'd have to look them up in the book). As Garrett
says, most of the others are going the other way, but all I care about
from a Jakarta level is that we keep sub-projects in a single
directory if possible so it's up to Lucene.

One reason for that is so that when people move to TLP, it'll be a
clean easy move of a single directory up a level.
