If the phpGroupWare folks are agreeable to this, then perhaps it
would be possible to devide the phpGroupWare package into a
number of packages, which each implements one webservice component,
plus one package which combines all those webservice components
into the phpGroupWare webservice application?

Most or all of the other components that Savannah needs exist
already, implemented by a variety of projects in a variety of
languages.  So I think we should work with those projects to
make them usable as webservice components via XMLRPC.  Then the
Savannah package only needs to contain the code for combining
all those webservice components into a webservice application
for managing software development projects.

What does everyone think about this?
