This seems like a bad idea to me. The whole point of doing this was to get
some consistency across Commons components. Remember that Commons is ONE
Jakarta subproject.  It is not, and was never intended to be, a bunch of
independent projects. As such, it should have a consistent build system,
and a consistent web site. That is not going to happen if all of the
components start breaking away from the commonality we have managed to
introduce so far.
