I think the point was that we aren't very likely to get into the "jar
hell" situation, where two different projects depend on two different
versions of commons-math and my project depends on both of those
projects.  I just think that the JDK5 jump merits jumping major
versions.  And, if you're going to jump versions, you should jump your
package name to match.  Again, that's just my opinion.  I would just
like to see Commons do things in a somewhat consistent manner when it
comes to this kind of thing.
