Definitely this is the right list.  We try to keep the private list
quiet and dull - community things like this should be discussed here.

There is just one Commons project.  The questions to ask are: 0) are
there people in the Commons community interested in working on this
and 1) does the code itself belong in Commons. 

We have in the past shied away from "frameworks" in Commons and
generally these kinds of things become TLPs at Apache, so that might
be the way to go.  On the other hand, this looks like something that
would be used by multiple ASF projects and may not be so big that it
could not fit in Commons.  It could also, like HTTPComponents, start
here and then become a TLP later when it gets big enough.

Is anyone interested in working on this in Commons?
