Let's not make this a shouting contest :-)

I don't think that anyone find it hard to create the new project, but just
that everyone is tied on all fronts. That just doesn't cut it for the
various related projects that have started to block on this of course. We
need a resolution, and we need it fast.

Maybe we can keep everything in xesam.freedesktop.org namespace and just use
xesam.org for hosting right now. It would be required that all http queries
on xesam.freedesktoo.org was forwarded to xesam.org, but that is probably
just as time-consuming as creating the xesam project in the first place...
