Jon, I presume that you are talking about the subject, and not the text you
are quoting.  In any case, a framework independent validator seems to me to
be valuable a reusable component.  If one or both can't be restructed to be
framework independent, then that would seem to be a reasonable explanation
for the duplication.  If both can, then merging of the best of both here in
commons would seem to be the wisest path.

David: I tried building it, and see no compile time dependencies on struts,
tomcat, or cactus.  Presumably these are only required by the unit tests?
