Yes, I think that is exactly what needs to happen. In fact I think I
will treat A along the lines of a Vendor Branch but in reverse.
Instead of incorporating new drops from outside vendors, I will be
exporting new drops of A from within the B project to it's own place in
the repository, where it will appear to be a much more stable entity.
The downside is that the developer working on A will now have a working
copy of B+A instead of the simpler A-only WC. Not really a big deal.
