the disadvantage of the more finely-grained approach we have taken to
project management is that now there is less productive intercourse
between projects outside ApacheCon. one of the most useful things about
the OSGi BOF was that it appeared that lots of people had cool toys but
no one knew about them or that there was interest in them outside
particular communities.
