+1 on this paragraph (and Don's #1 and #2), which I think Martin's agreeing
with as well.  The only possible difference between us I can see is whether
we keep the existing "Ti" sandbox project around for experimentation.  I
don't see any problem with that, *IF* we make it clear to the world what
Struts Action Framework 2.x actually is (the result of the merger), and that
Ti becomes no longer a proposal (in fact, we get to declare victory, because
the proposal is being accepted) -- and leave Ti to be a sandbox for ideas
that might be too radical for even the Action Framework 2.x folks :-).

Does that sound reasonable to you?
