It is indeed a diff :)

Which (at least in my opinion) has a better natural home at Eclipse. Especially with looks
generic tooling for Ajax toolkits (not saying it wouldn't do well at Apache though)

My mail wasn't meant to be destructive at all (at least if that is the impression you got).
It would 
be nice to have more Ajax projects onboard though, but it is still up to those projects to
decide if 
they want to move here or not. A bit more constructive wouldn't hurt though, we could 
unintentionally give the wrong signal to the outside world and this way prevent interested
from taking the step to Apache.
Although on the other side it is better to have a discussion than complete silence :)

Adjusted and also added the Kabuki proposal to the main incubator wiki page. If you want to
different words for what I have written, please go ahead :)
