Actually, it isn't. You *would* lose modularity, and you would have
even tighter coupling.

Additionally, remote sql invocation over arbitrary remote networks
isn't the greatest idea from both a performance and a security

The goal of the AUR2 should not be tighter coupling.

With the rearchitecture of the main site, I don't think this is very feasible.
I strongly feel that the AUR should remain "it's own app".
