I've never needed a finer level of granularity than the stack.  Not only 
does it make a natural dividing line that works easily from a technical 
standpoint, I've found that it helps project management to keep the 
focus at that level, allowing specific team members to work on discrete 
UI windows and libraries without interference.

The stack-level approach has worked well for me with teams with as few 
as three and as many as 25 members.
