[kepler-dev] Ptolemy Kore Dependencies

I'm using the term "Ptolemy Kore" to refer to the core packages
of Ptolemy that are needed by Kepler or other developers that want
to mix and match Ptolemy packages.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persephone says:
"for the Greeks knew another face of Persephone as well. She was also
the terrible [Queen of the Dead], whose name was not safe to speak
aloud, who was euphemistically named, simply as, Kore, "The Maiden", a
vestige of her archaic role as the deity ruling the underworld."

The K in Kore also refers to Kepler.  

I've started a list of package dependencies at

Basically, there is a certain amount of cleanup that should happen.

Thomas Feng is working on pulling fsm out of data.

actor.gui has references to vergil.  I'll work on that.

The data.unit package is rather well entwined in the code.  I'm open
to suggestions on how we can make it optional.

A larger issue is:  What do we do with code that is not in the Kore
modules?  For example, ptolemy.data.properties is not in a Kore
module.  I'd rather leave it where it was and use some sort of build
system to determine what packages go into Kore.
