How do we reconcile the fact that for all intents and purposes, the Libcloud community is
geared towards Python developers?

I'm not opposed to a Java port of Libcloud at all, but merely questioning its placement within
the same repository. From a committer's standpoint, I have far less of an ability to review,
to test and to sign off on Java code than I do for Python.

What does everyone think?
