Sweet synopsis. :-) I think it would be fair to say that this was a 
"possible" view; clearly, judging by other responses, this wasn't the only

We seem to have 2 immediate possible choices:

(1) the bootstrap PMC of ~5 folks, cogently described above; or

(1) going directly to the representative PMC.

I think we have some momentum for (2). Also, a central function of the 
"small" PMC was going to be growth, and so (2) is where we figured on ending 
up anyway.

Personal preference: every active subproject gets 1 rep. I understand from 
Arnaud that Crimson is inactive. Considering the C/C++/Perl projects to be 
different enough to merit a separate rep gives us that injection of 
non-Java, so I think it's a good idea.

Finally, I don't think that this representative PMC will be too big for the 
occasional legal or adminstrative decisions that have to be made.
