Personally, I'd prefer to have Cayenne in DB rather than as a separate
TLP, mainly for communication reasons with DB-related projects. E.g. I
don't see that much communication between the DB projects and, say,
iBatis or the Geronimo DB stuff (thuogh that might be because I'm not
actively involved in all DB projects). And IMO DB being an umbrella is
quite a different thing than for instance Jakarta, though that's
another issue.

That being said, whether Cayenne will be a TLP or a DB subproject is
not important until it graduates from incubation, right ? And I'm +1
on incubating it with the DB PMC as sponsor.
