Agreed!  I thought the whole point of the various commons libraries was
to provide a low-level set of libraries upon which other apps can be
built upon.  Why then is it such a problem for the different commons
project themselves to be interdependent?  I can understand not wanting
to have interdependencies between different areas of functionality (e.g.
[cli], [validator], [betwixt]), but surely we should encourage some of
the more specific commons projects to rely on the more general projects
(e.g. [lang], [io], [collections]) where appropriate?

WildcardUtils look general enough that it could go into commons-lang,
but then of course you introduce a dependency, which seems to give some
people a lot more heartburn than it gives me. I hate to see classes put
into the wrong library just to avoid even dependencies that make sense.
