I guess no one cares about the simplicity of, say, job search and
validity of results. It would be much simpler for everyone if they
were simply Struts, Webwork and Shale. Do you relly expect employers
to put "Struts Action Framework 2" in their job descriptions?

It would be much easier for Apache visitors to see one larger "Web
Frameworks" section that would cover not only for Struts, Webwork and
Shale, but for Tapestry, Cocoon and whatnot as well.

The above rant does not require a response.
