The lengthy set of teleconferences we have been having have been 
somewhat... inconclusive.

It is my hope that the harmony proposal accelerates that process. 
Preferably with an answer that we all like.  But if not - at some point 
even an answer that we don't like is better than lingering unanswered 
open questions.

I'd also like to point out that we are not at that point yet.  Not even 
close.  Apache incubation can be a fairly long process, particularly for 
proposals such as this one.

This is still a lot of room for optimism.

Concrete questions to help focus the discussion:

   * Can ClassPath use APR?
   * Can Harmony use ClassPath?

P.S.  I still believe that we all would be best served if the 
meta-harmony discussions were moved to the harmony mailing lists, 
reporting back as appropriate as we come to conclusions, but sometimes 
it doesn't make sense to argue with a herd of elephants.
