See my response to Sendu, and Steve Chervitz's original post and
which pretty much covers the same ground. I think at most 4-5 split
'cliques', including core, with the fewest possible dependencies in
core. If we do any of this, it prob. should wait until after an svn
migration and bugzilla bug stomping unless there is a (well-argued)
advantage to doing it now.
