Again, only as an example, maven takes the subproject name as the 
top-level name. I'm not altogether happy with it, as it makes the top 
level a very long list.

i.e. in the maven repository, jakarta/commons/beanutils is at 
/commons-beanutils of the repo.

My personal preference is no. I'm more often looking for a jar, version is 
usually a secondary consideration.

My preference here is yes.

I'd prefer we make a decision one way or the other for this repository, 
but let the tools be flexible.

Definitely.
