Yeah. :-) Before Jackrabbit 2.0 later this year we'll probably still
do at least one more minor Jackrabbit 1.x release based on Java 1.4,
and it would be nice to have it depend on a recent Commons IO version.

However, this itch is not big enough that I'd volunteer to manually
backport changes to IO_1_4_BRANCH. A retrotranslated version of IO 2.0
would be nicer, or alternatively I'd copy and backport just the
relevant classes into the Jackrabbit codebase.

In any case I agree that having IO 2.0 out would be nice.
