Just to clarify things:
IP clearance into the ASF for the original submission is done and
dusted. All additionnal code has been developped and committed by
project committers with an iCLA on file so I would consider IP not
an issue here.

Discussions have already happened in both the Grafitto and the
Jackrabbit communities to "move" development of the JCR mapping
functionality into the Jaskrabbit community and the feedback seemed
positive on both ends.
