Some modules are sledge hammers and some are scalpels... duplication
isn't bad... making core more accessible for modules to implement
features should be the focus of collaboration.

not is probably a tragic was of community resource and a further attempt
to apply more structure to the very successful anarchist environment
call cvs.drupal.org/cvs/drupal-contrib
