We could take that approach. Or, another approach would be to start
viewing the two parts of Graffito as independent podlings (whether they
actually separate their mailing lists and other resources though is not
relevant/necessary here I think).

Then, we can look at how ready the mapping code/community is for
graduation, and when ready, graduate it to the Jackrabbit TLP, just like
any other incubating project (Jackrabbit PMC vote, incubator PMC vote,
etc, etc).
