Yeah this is what I'm thinking.  The Java 5 move is important and I'm 
all for that.  However let's see where MINA is going to go with all the 
add ons we're going to throw into the project.

We may find we need to keep this multi-project structure after 
destroying it.  So this is why I think we should just be a bit more patient.
