James' patch is to org.apache.commons.validator.Validator -- if it 
doesn't break the API, work on Struts should have nothing to do with 
whether or not his patch gets committed.

That said, I'm a little suspicious of a class constant in his patch 
which "refers" to Struts, albeit in a String value:

+    public static String FORM_KEY = "org.apache.struts.action.DynaActionForm";

but I don't claim to have worked out all of the logic in the class, 
and I've never been a regular Validator user.  A while ago, I thought 
I'd try to learn more about Validator in hopes of helping to fix the 
outstanding bugs on it, but when my initial attempts got no feedback, 
I went on to other things instead.
