Yeah, well, too bad the LGPL is viral to those mock classes since they
are *derivative work* or the originals and they can't be placed under an
apache license without violating it.

So, the stall is:

 1) the ASF doesn't want *GPL code in CVS (expecially for java where
there is no clear definition of 'library')

 2) *GPL code doesn't allow *any* kind of modification or derivative
work to happen in a non-GPL license.

result: we'll have to ship those blocks from outside the ASF. and I
think makes perfect sense for those things.
