Yes, we recognized that last year, and so created the Commons. At that
time, David's framework already existed. Learning the lessons of
Turbine, we decided not to integrate into Struts, and left it as a
free-standing component. (It was created that way from the beginning.)

David has already done the work. At this point, the duplication of
effort would be making Intake a free standing component. If someone
wants to do that, and donate it to the Commons, I think that would be
great,  especially since the Commons specifically provides for
competiting implementations.
