Sourceforge seems to me to be much more open to peer contribution than 
apache projects ever have.  Apache projects have always seemed to be 
good ole boys network.

Exactly my point.  If, for example, I was running the xmlrpc project on 
SF, and Aaron had contributed his patch there, I'd have invited him to 
join the dev team and submit the patches directly.

Not that I have any intention of doing the above - I'm happy to be an 
xmlrpc user.  I think that the interceptor stuff looks very interesting, 
and would probably have helped my current project out, but I didn't know 
about it until I came sniffing around.  That such useful code has been 
left out for about a year is a real let-down.
