Which one ?

Most people come to Commons Configuration for an improved 
java.util.Properties. We can't reasonably impose a lot of dependencies 
for such a basic need. Some users complained about the size of the 
library and its dependencies in the past.

There is another dependency I'd like to remove, it's JXPath. We should 
be able to replace it with the javax.xml.xpath API introduced in Java 5.
