An additional level in the group id. Right now all projects use  
as groupId. Given that most projects are our-days multi module we end up
with quite a few directories in the repository :


In particular there is no real grouping per project.
The idea is that we add an additional level to the group is, like so:

- org.hibernate.core
- org.hibernate.validator
- org.hibernate.search
- org.hibernate.tool

So far we only have been discussing core, but I guess if we go down this  
path it
would make sense to apply this to the other projects as well.

The issue imo is that we cannot rename/change the existing artifacts. So  
even if the
new group id creates a better namespace between projects it will still  
increase the
confusion when looking at
