FWIW, the MyFaces folks have gone through the same sort of discussion
recently, trying to decide whether/how to share code between the JSF
implementation and the component classes.  The hardest part of the whole
thing is actually synchronizing releases of the helper classes, since both
framework versions would have dependencies on the common stuff.  They ended
up with a variation of the third approach -- a "shared" module in the
MyFaces repository that both things could depend on.
