Wow.  Yah.  Why did this get committed?  And why now?  Was there a particular 
reason that you wanted this?  I'm fairly sure that there wasn't a discussion 
about this on dev@apr.  So where did this review happen?  *scratches head*

I'm not totally against relicensing and committing it, but especially so close 
to APR 1.0, I'd at least like to know why now.  I believe in the past the 
feeling was that jlibtool should not be in the tree - Jeff and several others 
have their own libtool replacements, so, at the last ApacheCon, we had 
discussed taking a real effort and support all of them.  *shrug*  -- justin
