That sounds like a great contrib. Depending on how far along you already
are with the code, it might be better to start as a contrib now. (Presuming
the PMC would be in favor of it.)

Once substantial development has happened*, getting the code brought in as
a contrib will require going through the ASF IP Clearance process[1]. It's
certainly doable, but will take time.
