I just uploaded a patch: http://jira.jboss.org/jira/browse/JBSEAM-2236
The patch include a new folder with inside a (standalone) maven project.
You can run mvn clean install inside to test the patch.
I think it would be nice to separate this way fat component from the rest of seam. It would make it easier for non seam specialist to help on componenents they know well and makes testing easier.
What do you think ?
