That was my first thought too, but it feels a little clumsy.

I think that might be a better idea. Not everything is a service, of course, 
and the Java structure does have the advantage that it makes the top levels 
unique.

concentrate on whatever I felt like for, but soon there will be long lists 
of bug reports ;-)
