What about org.apache.commons.discovery ?

Sandbox is fine, if you want to - but it would be good to have it 
stable and 1.0 soon, so we can start trying to get the various

Most cut&paste the code, but there are variations and class loader
issues, it would be much simpler to have a consistent impl.
