Probably JMeter would be a best location for such a tool
(a subproject under JMeter).
As a being a part of Maven - there's a mojo.codehaus.org,
a kind of sister project to maven.apache.org, hosting maven2 plugins
for various 'third party' tools and libraries and also some maven2
but not 'core' plugins and I'd call it a 'second option'.

For general Open Source things - if this plugin (those plugins) will
become a part of JMeter they must be licensed using Apache2 license
(like every apache project, see http://www.apache.org/licenses/).
On mojo.codehaus.org you may choose other license if Apache2 won't work
for you (see http://mojo.codehaus.org/faq.html).

One thing that I'm not sure is how this could become a part
of JMeter, perhaps it should goes through http://incubator.apache.org.


PS1 I'm not speaking on behalf of Apache Software Foundation, just
as an email list subscriber.
PS2 Could you please put this plugin somewhere?
I'd be very interest to take a look - it looks very interesting.
