I am personally very interested in this, having worked on a similar 
project. In any case, it's a very interesting thing for Java in general 
to have such a component opensourced. Because of this, I will see to do 
all I can to help you.

As for accepting it at Apache, we decide not on technical merits as much 
as we look for a community that will keep driving the development effort 
on it.

In particular, this document may be of help:

If you believe that the proposal is not in line with this as it doesn't 
have a community that can cater for it, feel free to contact me directly 
  to see if we can find the right way to opensource it.
