That probably will happen.  It may already have happenned.

But there are other scenarios to consider.  It is possible to think that
Apache has served you well and want to return the favor.

I've watched Apache closely since the beginning.  Due to employer restrictions
(at both the previous and current) I couldn't get involved before now.

Suggestion: go back and read again what you wrote.  Your comments really
couldn't be taken any other way.

Anyway, it's a moot point.  Now that the subject of "Thoughts on a 2.0 API"
is under discussion by the Apache Group in general, the only appropriate
thing to do is defer to that discussion.  The API header generation software
I prototyped is available and I'll be willing to help if requested.

And if not, it's a pretty nifty little tool on its own so I'll keep it if
Apache doesn't.
