I totally agree.

However, just to stir the pot (and assuming you are well rested), I'll  
drop your "radical changes" constraint and suggest that maven (while  
it can be a PIA) makes this kind of modularity trivial.

With maven we could easily have:

Each module could easily declare:
  * its dependencies on other modules
  * the required JRE
  * document its level of maturity

And there are good off the shelf tools to report the dependency  
graphs, etc, etc.

If there are any serious moves to reorganize things, we should at  
least consider the benefits of maven.
