Of course, as the mailbox API will probably change more often, it will 
break potential mailbox-api direct users. It leads to two questions :
  - is there such users ?
  - do we expect alpha/beta software to be API stable ?

I really like the idea of merging things until 3.0 release happens then 
decide if we split back or not.

I think maven dependencies capture the intent of module responsibility 
very well. What would you want the guidelines to contain ? API stability 
rules ? Anything else ?
