The reason for not simply adding it as a contrib to Jackrabbit is the
"size" of the project: It consists of roughly 30 sub-projects. Pushing a
project of this size simply as a contrib to an existing project has been
considered as going through the backdoor and not being the Apache way.

I have not taken a note on this in the proposal because we just could
not imagine just hacking it into Jackrabbit as a contrib.

Hope this helps.
