Will something like that make sense at all, even if the license is
acceptable, and you guys figure out all the legal issues.

GNU Classpath is a project of its own, so I wonder how Harmony as an
ASF project can be a project after all if depending on another
project maintained somewhere else?

If the entire code base is not inside Apache CVS/SVN then how this
qualify for a project after all?

IMHO the ASF has much more transparent OS abstraction layer (APR)
then either classpath or any other library has. Also developing that
is less demanding task then JVM/JIT/GC etc... is thought.
