On the other hand, a new package may not be needed at all. I checked on the number of open source projects depending on 
Commons Math, and besides a beta version of JET from Codehaus, there is 
none. That means slight incompatible changes in the 2.0 API are unlikely 
to cause a dependency havoc across hundred of projects.
