I disagree in part, incubating needs to preceed a version number because
it's in descending significance (subversion .0 is less significant that
version-major 1).  So either incubating-wicket-1.3.0-beta1 or else use
wicket-incubating-1.3.0-beta - the later is more readable to me.

I agree there is no reason to force org.apache.incubating.wicket. to be
renamed after graduation to org.apache.wicket.  I can't envision where
another project will 'adopt' the o.a.wicket. space if it failed to
graduate, and that they wouldn't be watching the providence of o.a.wicket
if they choose to.  I think it's a disservice to our podling's community
of early adopters/testers/documentors/coders.
