Oh, its for lambda! Thank you for mentioning that. I had no clue what we
needed this thing for :-), may be it was obvious to the rest of the world
but not to me and I was surprised it wasn't mentioned in Jim's email.
But does it really need its own new repo ? I think there needs to be a
discussion on this
as I'd like to see *fewer* of them. How enormous is this thing ?
Can't be that big if there's a copy buried in jax-ws
