Hi Manfred,

sounds good.
I strongly doubt, that an incubation of the library is required ;-)
Not sure if we even need the much smaller process of the software
grant / ip clearance.
(Like we did with the portal bridge).

I saw your presentation and like the main idea behind it, so I'll
give you my +1 for a "myfaces aspect el" subproject.
