If a Jakarta project doesn't want to depend on Java 1.4 then it can choose 
one of the other regex packages.  I don't see a need to wrap a layer around 
regular expression implementations where speed is of great importance.

>How is Regexp different from Logging?

As I understand it, Log4J was not considered by Sun for logging.  This 
angered Log4J developers and fans and Apache ultimately voted against the 
logging JCP.  So, now we have commons-logging to support Log4J and JDK 1.4 
logging.  Also, logging is not speed sensitive like regular expressions.
