OK, but please keep the package exported via the Manifest so that other implementations of DFS can still be provided rather than locking it away completely.

Weren't there plans at some point to spin out the DFS support into its own module external to JGit? Would now be a good time to do that if you're looking at renaming them; that way, the DFS module can evolve at its own speed from the underlying JGit implementation.
