When something graduates from this "Jakarta Sandbox", where does it go?
Being a _Jakarta_ sandbox, one might assume that it becomes a Jakarta
subproject. But Hen has claimed to want to morph Jakarta into a
non-umbrella, and graduating to a new Jakarta subproject would be counter to
that goal. On the other hand, if it graduates to somewhere outside of
Jakarta, why is the sandbox inside of Jakarta?
