I like the idea, though I would prefer that a larger group
of committers (outside Yahoo!) were known up front because
that sounds like a big code base.  Any chance you could convince
some of the former coders to join in the proposal?

I would like to see how various bits compare to implementations
within httpd, particularly the protocol bits.  However, I don't
have the time to be a mentor.
