ATM I would leave everything depending on Mail/Spool/Users Repositories 
where it is. IMO JAMES needs refactoring there, so moving that code 
around would simply make it more difficult to having it fixed later.

We often discussed about introducing repositories in Mailet APIs, we 
also more often discussed that James needs better/different interfaces 
for Mail/Spool repositories. We also discussed that usersRepository are 
currently sharing "authentication", "user-properties" and 
"user-preferences" roles and we don't like this too much. Let's not 
write this interfaces in stone by having them to be the glue between 
multiple modules/libraries.

As usual this is a -0 and not a -1.

I am +0.5 for splitting the org.apache.james.transport package content 
from its mailet/matchers subpackages. They are not dependent on each 
other so they should not be nested as package (but fixing this would 
require breaking backward compatibility) and may belong to 2 different 
james-server modules. Maybe moving matcher/mailets packages to a 
"mailets-function" while leaving transport in "spoolmanager-function" 
would be fine ATM.
