It's this "rebuilding from scratch" approach I want to take, though I 
don't think it'll be a replacement for AS.  More along the lines of a 
parallel project.

AS, for many, has come to imply:

* $JBOSS_HOME file structure/layout
* Standalone Distribution
* Filesystem and runscript-based interface

Also AS is the upstream path towards our platform/product.

With a new name (Reloaded?) we can more easily shed all backwards-compat 
that AS has provided and grow incrementally in a community setting.
