Pretty cool!

IMHO, this already looks very promising and I think a restructuring
could also be quit nice.  But I don't have any good ideas about what the
structure should really look like, only unripe thoughts...
(should there be a distinction between:
 libs/frameworks - tendency: no
 tools/apps/servers - tendency: maybe
 dev/user - tendency: maybe not)

I do think it would be good time to distinguish the non-FSF copyright
assigned projects like extensions and gsantlr.  That could also be a
place where I could put the GPL'ed MySQL Adaptor for GDL2.

Anyway I'm looking forward to a transition to subversion and since the
FSF doesn't have any reservations about the source being hosted at, I withdraw mine.
