Subject Re: [VOTE] (3) XxxUtilsConstructors last chance

I am not aware of any -1 to the CVS commit. There have been -1's to votes,
but not IIRC to the commit.

A lot of the discussion has come because Velocity used a sandbox component
and expected it to be stable.

For the StringUtils case, it seems to be proven that it was used in
production. As such I feel that I have no choice but to support a public
constructor (for backward compatability reasons).
