I don't see why the generating code needs to be released.  CloudStack doesn't incorporate
it.   Also, GPL and other tools are used all the time in the development of ASF code...

Anthony, can you comment on this?  The question goes back to Mike's earlier question:

Mike, the community wants to get an Apache CloudStack release out "quickly" and from what
I know of XenServer product timelines they would not qualify as "quick".  So I'd request that
Citrix do a release of the XenServerJava library outside the XenServer release framework.
  This could even be a re-release of whatever CloudStack is currently using.
