I'm not sure I understand exactly what you propose:
if oliver and sandro are willing to work on *Graffito* and focus on
building a JCR mapping so that Graffito can leverage JCR repositories,
then I'm definitely +1 to have them as committers on Graffito.

However, the goal of the work at hand should be to improve Graffito
while staying in scope with the charter of the project.
If the JCR mapping can be easily reused by other projects then it's
a significant bonus but IMO should not be the primary focus.
In that sense, I believe your second vote is premature: let's focus
on the work at hand and build a nice community before even thinking
of spinning out code bits elsewhere.
