I agree that Centipede should remain separate and remain on top of Ant.
I also think that Centiepde can become an Ant subproject in it's own 
right, with committers that have access only to the eventual 
"ant-centiepde" module.

Seems fair enough. I agree that we should go as slowly as needed, by 
integrating all that makes sense in Ant, and seeing what remains, and 
deciding what is in the best interest for all of us.
