Sometimes code needs to be separated into different jars or EJBs for 
operational reasons, where it makes no sense to release separately.

In other cases, code can be in a state of transition, where code is 
first refactored into a separate jar, which is then spun out to have a 
lifecycle of its own.

There is no "one size fits all" strategy for all projects, especially as 
projects evolve over time.

(We have 5 primary projects, with 5 discrete version numbers, and we are 
negotiating to arrange a sixth. Politics takes time.)
