This would be in line with the "two frameworks" approach (action based and
component based) we've been evolving -- and would be consistent with the
fact that Shale currently uses "org.apache.shale".  An alternative would be
to use "org.apache.struts.action" and "org.apache.struts.shale" ... but the
former is going to have unfortunate interactions with existing Struts 1.xcode.

this seems to be a little at odds with some previously stated
