If the functors (and you should choose a new name, its much too close
to commons-functor) are so closely tied to commons-collections, why
don't you distribute the commons-collections lib in two variants ? One
could contain only the core functionality, say
commons-collections-core.jar, and the other the complete collections
lib, say commons-collections-full.jar.
Do you expect the new component to have a higher release cycle than
commons-collections itself ? If not, than IMHO that would not justify
a new commons component.
