Yes, I'd also like to throw my support behind the continuing
maintenance of jade.  Here is what I think we should do.

First, find a candidate for a new primary maintainer (no, I don't
volunteer, since I don't know C++)

Next, present (nicely, diplomatically) an ultimatum to James Clark [hi
James, if you're reading this]:

  * please either do one of the following:
     (a) respond more quickly to patch requests
     (b) hand over maintainership to the volunteer, <fill in name>
     (c) or else we're going to fork anyhow

I don't think there's one person on this list that would like some
additional features in jade (suprisingly, there are very few bugs).

I guess it all comes down to finding a new maintainer.

I think we'd do well with a 'bazaar' style development method --
shared CVS area with multiple (qualified) people given write access,
mail list just for jade maintenance (or use this list), open bug
tracking system.
