Subject RE: Compartmentalization of Modules (was Re: [18111] et al)

I have to say I think moduleRelative is much clearer to me.  I'm VERY happy to see that contextRelative
is going away -- I always found it very ambiguous as to what it meant.  "modular" is unlike
any other attribute that's present in Struts that I can think of, and for that reason also
"moduleRelative" gets my +1.

Either moduleRelative or modular would be fine with me. 

I've done the initial work on this, but need to do some testing before I check it in. Probably
