Actually, that is what I meant.  When I said "work closely with Costin on
Jakarta" I didn't mean actually be _part_ of Jakarta :-).  The idea is that
if there were two engines (as opposed to a single one that worked on both
platform), it would be a shame if they diverged much.  I have done research
in the past about approaching Apache with a project such as this, but
noticed the requirement that there be two groups of people interested in it
(rather than the one person I was at the time).

About your second point, I agree with that (and have stated so in the past:
http://lists.saurik.net/message.xsp?id=62 , Phase 3; I also go into a few
more of the similarities).  With a Java compiler for .NET it could likely be
done quite easily with the same core but a different Facade for the
HttpModule work.  I've been quite impressed in the past with the modularity
of Jakarta's code.
