Tomcat Naming is dependent on JavaMail, JMX, Tyrex, Commons Collections
and JTA. However, apart from Collections, all the others are only
dependencies for ObjectFactories. JMX is a dependency for a wrapper around
the JNDI.

So the core JNDI implementation itself is just dependent on Collections
[for LRUMap].
