My thoughts are that this is going to be one of those really long
catch-22 discussions when all we want is a place to refactor the code
contributions, work with the contributers, and get them into shape
before doing what we all discussed and decided on the list months ago. 
My thought is that I've spent way to much time on Apache lately arguing
for the right to code and way to little time being able to do it.  So
I'm tabling this for now and I'll come back when I have more spare
cycles for long catch-22 discussions.  This will undoubtably seem like
another one of my over-reactions but I just want to write code and docs
and stuff....Endless "go commit your code over there"  "but no go do it
over there" discussions have gotten so old that I just don't have the
energy right now for one more.  so I give for now, be back in a few
months.

Sorry Mark.
