I am quite interested in such a project, as myself is considering doing
the same thing.
Will you consider move the project to java.net to get more visibility?

I hope it is OK. IMO, this would be best.

I think in order to use org.freedesktop.*, it would be better to get
some sort of acknowledgment from freedesktop.org. Sort of like host the
One example is the D-Bus Java binding.
If there are enough interest, maybe it worth an umbrella project for
Java bindings for different specs.
