it depends.

this kind of thing would definitely fit well within the commons. 
however, successful commons components do require a critical mass of 
ASF committer energy. sometimes, it can be easier to build a community 
elsewhere where the rules are different. i don't really have the spare 
energy to push this through the sandbox by myself.
