Here is a different view,

<host>/<group>/<project>/<type>/<id>-<version>[.ext]


I would like to see the group as completely different from the project name 
but what the user is used to, like an "XML" group, "WebServices" group, 
"Testing"....   Thoughts ?  Because sometimes, the project names don't say 
what they are actually meant to do, and even if it says they could be 
acronyms or something indirect, so having a meaningful group and then 
whatever project falls under that will be a good one for the users.


And I think version should be mandatory, since that is the killer in the 
java world.
