no, this is not what I had in mind. The main problem is that ldapstudio 
and ADS are pretty much separate project. It's not really obvious that 
they must share the same trunk. Triplesec is also a separate project. 
And at some point, I'm not sure that it is a good idea to have a common 
pom.xml for all those guys in trunks, because them it will be mor and 
more difficult to guarantee that trunks is always 'buildable' at all 
time : too many people will risk to break the build with a bad commit, 
and it will take too long to build the whole project before committing.

I think it made sense when it was about ads itself. Now with ldapstudio 
representing half the size of ADS itself, and triplesec being a fat baby 
too, I'm not sure it worth it anymore.

The 'why' should remain history, at this point. What was good a year ago 
may not be good now, IMHO. The separation could make sense now, and we 
may go back to a grand-reunification in one year, I don't know. Right 
now, my guts ask for a little separation, like what we did for MINA (not 
that I want ldapstudio to become a TLP :).
