OK, I'll slap together a website this weekend so you guys can download the code, 
jars, browse the java docs, etc.

Can you show the code somehow?

I'm sorry, but we can't just take your code and put it on mapproxy.org, there 
are too many open questions: Wich version of MapProxy did you use for your port? 
How do you guarantee that the Java version includes all new features? Who checks 
that both versions are compatible? Who fixes bug in the Java version. Etc.

Maintaining an Open Source project is much more that just writing (or porting) 
some code.
