Or maybe I'm just confused about the naming, it seems odd to me for "core" to target Java EE, whilst modules target Java SE...

For now I've merged the CDI and IDM subprojects (these are now submodules of the PicketLink project, with "CDI" renamed to "Core") and the plan is to eventually merge the social and federation modules also.
