My preference would be to move component and receivers into Chainsaw with extras as a fallback.
Looks like a move to extras is the compromise position. Basically that makes extras the resting
place of backports from log4j 1.3 that were of only specialized interest.

For my understanding of Gary Gregory use of receivers, it should be a net reduction of one
jar by replacing snapshot builds of component and receivers with a release build of extras.
For the project, it is no net increase of release components instead of having to prepare
two additional artifacts for release.

If somebody wants a formal vote, start a vote thread. If someone else wants to tackle it,
please use svn cp's so that the history (which would trace back all the way into log4j 1.3)
is preserved and don't break the component and receivers companions in the process by doing
svn mv's. 

If not, I'll take take a shot at moving things around in the next few days.
