FYI, the goal has always been to have the same sources in both cforms 
branches. Having two branches led people to modify one or the other, not 
always porting changes. I was tired of doing the merge again and again, 
and I spent more than one full day merging 2.1, 2.2 and the library 
branches. That's why I decided to use svn:external, to save merging time.

Now for sure this comes with the constraint of being 2.1.x compatible, 
both in terms of code (there are some nifty Rhino 1.5 features that I 
can't use) and JDK level (thanks to commons-lang, this is easy)

Well, yes. And thanks for being our "Mr JDK 1.3 compatibility" :-)

Fixed, please cross-check!
