The plural of corpus is corpora ;-)

I would hesitate to create that much structure when we have 2 annotators 
in the sandbox, hopefully one piece of tooling soon and nothing else so 
far (not a single corpus in sight, afaik).

We can hold certain pieces of software back from a release if they're 
too shaky even with a huge disclaimer (as Adam suggests in another 
mail).  Let's not make this more complicated than it needs to be.

I'm pointing at Lucene all the time because that's clearly a model that 
works.  They have all kinds of stuff in their sandbox.  Why don't we 
start out that way, and if it gets too much, we reorg.
