Note that this particular separation (of the model APIs and DAO) has
been done already ... core/trunk/struts-examples/mailreader.  We'd
only need to make all the incantations of mailreader use this common
code base to reduce some of the duplication.

However, you're going to end up with different implementations no
matter what ... they exist to illustrate different technological
approaches to building the same app, to facilitate comparisons.
