Well it *was* there, and also in build.xml for quite some time, but 
nobody cared. So I rmed it (IIRC it was also part of your spring 
cleaning program, but I could be wrong)

Other Apache projects have asked me if it's possible to set it up.

It's in Java (Ant), can I run it there?

Well, there has been a discussion on the gump list following this mail.
The outcome is that it's probably not part of Gump.

It's a bit like your Agora or the Apache map, or Vadim's stats, all 
useful services for the community but no place to be.
