To start with (because it is easier for people to update) I've 
replicated Tim's table on the Wiki 
(here:http://wiki.apache.org/harmony/component_development_status). I've 
linked one component (j.l.mangement) to a seperate page and marked it as 
"started". How about other people marking up the areas that they are 
working in?
