As the author of a 'competitive' package, jexl, that will feel some sort of
competitive pressure (meaning if anyone has anything to lose with it coming
to commons, I do...) I fully support it coming to commons.  If people wish
to be able to have a component that needs JSTL EL support, then a commons
component is the right idea.

That said, I do believe that you should reconsider 'el' as the package
