Even if you were to fork the project, you could still keep the Apache  
license on the core code. The restriction for including GPL code is  
all about code released by Apache: that is, code which is part of an  
official release. There is no such problem with code distributed  
through sourceforge or anywhere else. So, by keeping the Apache  
license on anything you add, the project still has the possibility of  
being re-included in a core Cayenne release in the future (if the GPL/ 
LGPL parts can be replaced with something equivalent).
