This was the main reason I chose i18n. No deps, no new problems.

I really liked this light-weight approach. I had a need of localized MBeanInfo (see contribution)
and with i18n's concept, I was able to write also just a little Bundle impl, that is based
on some conventions for the provided resources.

BTW: Just because I did not mension this in Bugzilla - the contribution does not have external
deps either. Onle the javadoc has a link to MBeanInfo, the code does use no JMX fucntionality
at all.
