i have no objections provided that it meets my three criteria :)

i believe that what this means (in practice) is that you need to be able 
to get lang promoted to the commons before the code can be moved and the 
methods in beanutils deprecated. then a release for lang needs to be cut 
as quickly as possible for beanutils to depend on.

how i would personally approach this would be by calling a series of [VOTE]
s as a way of assembling a consensus for your plan. i believe that the 
first necessary step would be to prepare lang for promotion to the commons.
  if lang cannot achieve promotion, then the low level introspection 
methods cannot be moved into there.
