I wrote something about this a long time ago and had some conversation
with Jon Stevens about this. His opinion was basically "no, I will not
give the code to the ASF". However, the code _is_ under ASF 1 like
license, so a fork outside the ASF would IMHO be possible.

If you are interested in this and look for a starting point; you can get 


which is a snapshot of my internal subversion tree of village. This is
basically CVS head from share.whichever.com, cleaned up a bit and
added a maven build. I once intended to work on this but I have a few
new ideas which I want to intigue Thomas with @ ApacheCon. :-)

I'm here, I'm unfortunately just lurking ATM (Hint, hint... ;-) ) and
I can help you even in person if you plan to do this @ ApacheCon.

If you do, you should definitely create yourself a GPG key for the
signing and bring it to AC to get it signed by a number of other
Apache people.
