The difficult part of this is deciding how to handle it in terms of 
releases. We are well on the way to a bug fix release that should be 
able to run all categories of QA test. Do we want to combine the package 
name change with that, or do it as a separate release?

My initial feeling is to keep them separate, and do the bug fix release 
first. The bug fix release is not a comparability issue. There have been 
some indications that some com.sun.jini classes are being used in user 
code, so the package name change may have more impact on users.

The actual mechanics of renaming packages while preserving the history 
is a job for an IDE. In the past, I've done it using Eclipse with one of 
the subversion plug-ins.
