Well, Apache isn't about building things to fill industry
niches -- it's about enabling developers to work on what
they want and helping networks grow.  So I don't think that
already having N similar packages should be a bar to adding
an Nth+1 effort.

Which may seem at first to be at odds with my position in
the not-too-distant ServiceMix brouhaha -- but it really
isn't.  I wasn't at all opposed to bringing in [another]
BPE project, only to where it was originally slotted to land.
Nor did I opine that it should be forcibly merged into one
of the existing efforts; rather, that it should be an
independent peer -- a competitor, if you like.
