Centipede started as a Jakarta POI build.
Then it was used by xml-Forrest.
Then I proposed to put it in Forrest but the community decided that it was
better off on itself for now.

I can't help it if some Jakarta Projects keep on creating sub-projects, that
are not related to the scope of the original project, at their wish.

It will take me no time to put it in Jakarta-Commons.

Sure, does it give automatic build functionality download?
Does it give you easy skin selection?
Does it give you UML class diagrams?

That's your opinion.

Centipede has skins, and also a Scarab skin.
Next beta will have a Maven skin :-)
