As Robert said, perhaps it would fit better into DB Commons.  Several things
from Jakarta Commons may move as well (a comment based simply upon my
observation of people having said that before).

Personally, I think the project sounds interesting, and I might use it if it
were available, but I have no time to put into such a project.  I hope that
others do, and express interest.

To be clear, if there is an ASF community wanting to adopt a code base, or
an external community with ASF sponsorship, the Incubator will help to make
sure that it happens.  So this process would be "difficult" only if there is
no community willing to support the codebase.

Another possible venue would be, which does care about quality
code, but does not have the same community requirements.
