I was proposing that top level directory because it matched the
download naming.  It seems more consistent to me.

As for using "Apache River Jini Technology Kit" inside the release as
its name --  I think that's possible.  I'm not sure if that's a good  
or not....

Other opinions?

Since this release is focused on structuring/naming/working our way
through the Apache process (versus adding features in the release),
that makes sense.  Others?
