Hmmm... I would oppose this for two reasons;

 1. Creating boundaries within a project, yet collaborate on the PMC level 
seems odd to me. Either people are entrusted within the project (committer 
rights) or they are not (no committer rights). If you think that a Thrift 
Java programmer will mess up the Ruby Thrift code, then you have bigger 
problems to deal with, IMHO.

 2. Some people will eventually become fluent in more than one of these. Are 
you now going to start a VOTE on granting access to such member to another 
part of the project? Who is to decide that? The people involved in that 
language only or the whole PMC (ignoring for a fact that ASF has rules for 
this)? I can't see it work in practice.

So if you drop that idea, I can vote in favour of incubating this project.
