Just a note about CLI.

Avalon has worked with Jakarta Commons so that we are able to move the 
projects that now rely on Excalibur CLI to Commons CLI, so remember your 
customers ;-)

One point that we would like to see is that commons logging is never a 
*hard* dependency. That means that if commons logging is not in the 
classpath, the package should be able to work correctly, even if with 
logging disabled.

Furthermore, there is a patch for a completely reflective version of 
CLI. What's the status of that?

Thanks :-)
