+1 - but lets try to minimize the changes for now to those necessary
to get the build to work (i.e., hold off on internally

I wonder if it would be just as easy to just move to using Ant for
this phase of dbcp development and either build a pool jar or just
pull in the required pool sources?  I would personally be fine with
that approach.
