Yeah, I agree this would be a good thing and would make sense in the near future.  I think
we should iron out the TLP stuff first and we should let Nutch discuss what it's plans for
modularization are.  But yeah, I'm definitely open to discussing it.   

I think we sometimes also forget about the fact that we can always SVN revert things, too,
if someone makes a commit that doesn't work out.
