Where do you see issues?  Please be as specific as possible.  Nothing
changes without constructive feedback.  :-)

By way of an example, I believe that DBCP requires pooling and collections.
That means that it does not have to re-implement either, and those seem like
reasonable dependencies.  And the two dependencies are quite useful in their
own right.  And I'd like to see better logging support in all of them.
