We are using DBCP in an application that has not yet gone to production, 
but is in active development; and we could definitely use this feature.  
Of course, I could just hack the source and implement it myself, but 
I've been too lazy thus far. :)  Anyway, just wanted to let you know 
that your proposed enhancements would be much appreciated by the user

This would be nice, too: we're using C-L in our app.

That would all be just great!

    Hoping you decide to go this route,
