Unfortunately we had no 'commons' when we refactored the util code
from tomcat :-( I also looked a lot at xerces's string mangement 
and ant's xml reader ( but I ended up implementing a different 
idea, the MessageBytes/Notes and XmlMapper ).

I keep trying to move the utils from j-t-c to commons, but I never
found the time or energy, sorry about this.
