Below the answer of Dane (with his permission to distribute):

... The 
response to your question about an Apache style license is no. The BSD 
style license that the library is uses should be sufficiently flexible 
to allow the DBCP group to include the ideas and code that I have 
presented w/o modification to my existing license. If this is not the 
case please let me know where and how my license prevents this from 
happening and I will see what I can do to remedy it.

The response to your suggestion to try to merge w/ DBCP is no. There are 
a couple of reasons for this:
1) I'm not very found of the Apache politics. To attempt to merge w/ 
DBCP means I would have to do things the Apache way and that is 
something I'm not even remotely interested in doing.

2) Though the end result of my initiative and the DBCP are the same. Our 
goals and process are sufficiently different to require pause.
   Apache: The DBCP is a general solution to the pooling problem. JDBC
   pooling is simply one of its manifestations.

   Dane: Cluster capable pooling is a specific problem that I'm trying to
   solve which happens to be a general solution to JDBC pooling.

   Apache: Reach the widest possible audience.

   Dane: Shun the spotlight. I don't view my work as an illustrious open 
source project w/ great ambitions and far reaching consequences. It's 
simply a solution to my problem that no one has solved thus far (AFAIK) 
and a problem that I assumed other people my be having. This is one of 
the reasons I've chosen a BSD style licenses. It allows people to take 
the idea and the rough sketch that is the code; and run w/ it as they 
see fit. The key thing for me is, there is a problem and I needed a 
solution, there was no readily available solution so I created one that 
suited my needs. If the code is good enough and the problem is one that 
enough people have, then making it available would have served its 
purpose. If that is not the case then the code has still served its 
purpose because it solved my problem.
...
Dane.
