Well, I think the point was that this particular project wasn't a
library project, so not suited for commons.

However, given Noel's email on commons-exec, I think it would be good to
talk about the similarities of the sandbox and the incubator and
determine if both are needed and how they can help each other.

I'm pretty sure that this can happen, and has happenened before. It is
not always necessary, as the committers may be able to start it under
their current project and later if it grows a community of its own look
for promotion to Jakarta of Apache (such as what Maven did from Turbine,
or Ant from Tomcat).
