Troy,

I might be missing something but AFAICS the jakarta-regexp 
dependency is mainly just legacy we're reluctant to touch, while 
most new regex-needing additions are opting for the oro 
dependency (probably for the reasons you mention)

I would be +1 to the allignment effort that removes the 
'historical' jakarta-regexp dependency from our code...
(support on jdk 1.3 makes it impossible to use the 1.4 regexp 
support)

So please proceed and keep us posted?

Any other opinions on this?
