Yea, sounds like we have a bit of a terminology problem here. We've always
called them "sub-projects", but in fact they're all managed by a single
PMC, released as a single artifact, live in a single source repository,
will soon have a single user mailing list, and have a largely overlapping
set of committers. The things they do maintain separately are *-dev@
/*-issues@/*-commits@ mailing lists, and separate "JIRA projects." I think
these separations are worth maintaining.

Anyway, I think that having totally separate TLPs may one day make sense,
but I think it would be premature to do so now.

Thanks for the discussion, Chris.
