Ok, so reading this thread left it at the following:

  1) the maintainers of MTJ were all willing to relicense it as Apache, that
wasn't already BSD licensed.  So licenses are workable.

  2) there was discussion about what level of native code / generated code
be acceptable in [math], which the consensus was that java source code was
but f2j had some weird post-processing on .class files necessary, meaning
that to
include mtj, [math] would need to depend on:

    a) Fortran source code files which could be included, or
    b) compiled java jars which have the translated BLAS/LAPACK code

Does 2) hinder the acceptability of MTJ in [math] ?  JIRA tickets MATH-269,
and MATH-271 haven't been commented on since they were created back in
