+1 on this for Struts 1.1.

I'm (slowly but surely) getting sold on some form of cross-module sharing
in 1.2.  If we go that way, it would be much more appropriate for *all*
components of Struts to be consistent with how they do this, in both 1.1
and 1.2.

Cedric, your concerns about reusability really do resonate.  Indeed, this
is one of the things that makes Tiles so popular.  This proposal keeps
that feature for intra-module use (and, indeed, extends it so that Tiles
is useful in non-default modules), and lays the groundwork for solving
cross-module sharing/inheritance/whatever (for all Struts features) in a
coordinated way in the future.  OK?
