This is not about "feeling differently". There is no "stealing" of
code or intellectual property, so as far as incubation is concerned
this is a non-argument.

Another example: Chukwa, Flume and Ambari. The're all incubating, with
significant overlap in features and technical architecture.
So what? If successful, some or all of them may become TLPs. I didn't
notice similar turf-related complaints from those projects.
