This was up on the table for this release, but we decided against it. 
The reasons can be found in the mail-archive, if you look back far 
enough. The main reason is that it's a point release. It should be a 
drop-in replacement.

If there comes a 1.2 or 2.0 release I'm sure we'll address it.

Unfortunately it's not all that easy to do. No matter which way you look 
at it, there are always some drawback when changing the groupId. Doing 
it anyway is possibly dangerous because of the widespread use 
commons-logging has.
