It could be commons primitives 2, but as the API would be rather 
different it would seem difficult to explain to our users. Having the 
separate codebase would thus seem to make sense.

With the design you are thinking of, commons seems best.

The joda code uses code-generation to create all the 8 types of 
primitives from velocity templates. I always felt this was a better way 
to manage code such as primitives. As such though, the codebases have 
very little in common, so I suspect trying to write one codebase would 
be difficult.
