We do things a little differently. We generally have one tree per jar. This
ensures a strict dependency relationship between our jars. With a single
tree, it would be possible for the compiler to bring in classes which you
had intended to exclude. The separation of trees, supported by the ant
script enforces the strict dependencies between jars. You have to be more
careful to avoid that in a single tree.
