What about asking the Hypersonic folks to donate the code to the ASF

I was thinking about that the other day now that the deal with the dbXML
folks is done: we'll have a native XML database under xml.apache.org and
was thinking about the missing RDBMS software and hypersonic seemed to
me a good starting point.

It might be a good thing to try with them first and if they reject the
deal, I think it's a good thing to incubate it here or over
