Great.  Personally I think it makes sense for the PMC to manage its
own evolution.  This is a non-trivial part of The Apache Way.

I realize that the ASF Board has the ability in extraordinary
situations to intervene directly in a PMC's decision making process.
"As a last resort" and "a blunt instrument" are the terms I recall
being used earlier in reference to Board intervention.   It will be
very interesting to see if they think this is a situation that
warrants such action.
