i'd say that this is a call that is best made later. the actual API is 
pretty simple and i have been thinking about it for a long while. there 
are a small number of choices which might be made differently but i'm 
hoping that these will shake down pretty quickly.

from my perspective, the major stumbling block (as far as creating 
another digester release goes) is finding a volunteer from the jakarta 
pmc who's willing to cut the release. (i wouldn't block a release by a 
non-pmc member but i wouldn't offer active support either. note that 
this is my personally opinion and most other people see things a little 

the next digester release could be as soon as craig's cut 
commons-logging or could be months or even years away. so, i'd prefer 
to take a view as to what should be when we're ready to create a 
release plan.
