Both extreme options are nightmares imo. Holding everything up while
you to release everything in sync is painful too. Struts has the
advantage of a common entry point already.

I would be tempted to schedule major upgrade cycles, while having
minor ones run independently. Still tricky to do, and hurts
innovation. Then again - having a scheduled 'v4.0 of all Commons
components will now be available to be worked on' time might make
innovation happen more easily.
