I agree there is that risk.

That said, I believe the James community would be fertile ground to take 
over responsibility of the ASF-licensed implementation.  I'm planning to 
push to adopt Alex's implementation into James once it's appropriate. 
In fact, I was wondering how the activation.jar implementation is coming. :)

We've discussed creating a subproject in James to maintain ASF-licensed 
JavaMail implementations, which historically has only really meant 
stores and session (providers).  If it can include the core 
implementation as well, so be it.
