I don't see this as a case of that, as there are Commons committers
(self included) interested in working on this code in Commons.  If
you and others insist, we will do the side trip through the
Incubator, but I do not see it as necessary, nor consistent with
what we have done with other code brought in through the sandbox. 
For me, the litmus test on bringing externally sourced code into the
Sandbox (or [math] or any other component) is are there ASF
committers interested and willing to work on it and grow a community
around it.  I see the likelihood of healthy growth around the Naomi
code base higher starting in Commons than the Incubator.   I am
personally interested in working on this code.  There appear to be
others as well.  My cycles and energy for administrivia are limited,
so I would appreciate some flexibility on this.  On the other hand,
I respect alternative views and if the consensus is we have to side
trip through the Incubator, we will do that.
