I too am tired.  For example, I know from past experience that as a
committer if I were to -1 this, my objection would be ignored.

Furthermore, as a PMC member, I know that if I were to raise the issue
there it would be ignored.

Furthermore, I started to build this exact same JPAN type of thing.
(Though to be fair - I was focusing more on the open source part of the
equation, downloading the source and building a consistent set of binaries
- a process that makes painfully obvious the ramifications of every
projecting inserting their own set of binaries into the mix).  I quickly
came to the conclusion that I would need the cooperation of virtually every
project to get this off the ground.  Very few projects seemed concerned
when I indicated that they will be incompatible to upcoming Ant or Xerces

 It has atrophied but as of tonight will again be running with current data
(sometime on November 16th, somebody decided to disconnect my LAN port, so
