I guess I'm going through the same thinking process that you've just been
through. ;-) At first, Extras seemed like the logical place. A little more
thought suggests that keeping it as its own build artifact not only makes
the changes simpler, but it also eliminates my main concern with adding it
to Extras. Since it has had a release already, we'll want to keep some
semblance of normalcy to the version numbering, which will be easier if it
has its own version number.

Frankly, if we move it from its own sub-project to being a component of
Action 1, I doubt that many people would even notice.

PS - I actually think this is cool stuff, but since I do things the
1.3Action-less way these days, now I want scriptable Commons Chain
