good enough for me, then.  i can't speak for the rest of the incubator
pmc, but i'm now abundantly satisfied.

binding answer to *what* from the incubator?  i am not trying to be
difficult, sam; quite the opposite.  let me rephrase it: i, personally,
think it would be a good thing for all concerned -- asf, tapestry,
jakarta, incubator -- to have as many knowledgeable and (constructively)
critical eyes watching the tapestry incubation as possible.  i now feel
entirely comfortable (and i hope everyone else does) that jakarta has
reserved a spot for tapestry.  afaik, the only obstacles now aren't
obstacles, just technical to-dos (accounts, cvs, et cetera).
