That is kinda my impression too.  Should I make an approach to the MX4J 
team and mention this?  One always risks flaming for this, but I feel we 
should given them a heads up.

The ideal world is that they are dependant on the real JMX API and have 
their own impl.  There could, however, be a compelling reason as to why 
they have essentially forked the API.
