For what it's worth, I can easily see wombat going either way --  
whichever path is selected will become a self fulfilling prophecy.  
The proposal on the table is to set it up as part of the httpd  
project, and most of the other folks who have contributed (Paul and  
Garrett) would like to do it here. Martin, the fourth contributor,  
isn't an ASF committer, and I don't think feels strongly about how it  
eventually goes.

Mostly, I just want a "correct mailing list" right now so that  
discussions on private email, IRC, and IM can move there :-) I think  
the ASF is the right place to do this, and Paul and Garrett have  
convinced me that a subproject of httpd is the right path based on  
other folks' goals (which I am happy to support, but aren't my  
personal itch).
