Yeah.. wish it would have been that easy when we tried to being in
ActiveMQ from Codehaus as sub-project of Geronimo since it was THE JMS
implementation shipping with Geronimo.  I guess the big difference was
you guys did a code grant, while the ActiveMQ stuff had to have it's
ip checked.

Count your blessings.  The incubator is really a horrible speed bump
to go through.
