Or come up with a new name for us to bring together these projects (i.e., a
fresh slate).  Such an umbrella under a PMC is not without precident, see
Jakarta's Avalon and Turbine projects.  We could also discuss factoring out
portions that are potentially common to mulitple code bases (e.g., JAX RPC,
Wsdl2Java, etc.).

The one thing I want to insist is to have a single -dev list in order to
facilitate the building of a community.  Multiple -user lists can are fine.
