Thanks for your patience :-) I wasn't trying to discount your
proposals, and I appreciate that you'd created a patch--I was just
trying to understand the reasons you disliked the org.apacheextras.*

If your conversation with Greg is easy to summarize, it might be worth
documenting why this proposal ended up being ok for you--but if you
just want to get back to writing code, that's fine too :-)

Tiny nit on the patch: we have project management committees, not
project committees :-) (Hey, at least I read it, right? :-))

My very vague recollection from when Apache Extras was booting up was
that we didn't want "official PMC-sanctioned projects" to have special
status there. I'd give this one a day or two to collect more input
before updating anything.
