I'm not familiar with the patch and the risks - but if a project
depends on this and there are no
good alternatives - maybe it can be revisited.

I really don't get the point of your maven change - you seem to just
move sources around in a separate repository with history, and the
only reason is that maven doesn't support our layout ?
I don't think ant is the only or best tool - I don't mind having maven
build files - or Makefiles, jam or any other build tool as long as it
doesn't force us to organize the source in its own way.

Interdependencies and circular dependencies between packages can be
better than all the breakups and duplication and tricks done to avoid
