...what came first - the chicken or the egg? ;)

(Please no one answer - otherwise this could become the longest thread
in the ASF's history)

But seriously. I see Commons as what is missing from the JDK.
BCEL is (or was?) even included in the JDK - so there goes my argument.
But in the end it comes down to a personal interpretation what should
have been included.

All I can say is that I my vote is something around -0.1 and +0.1
...depending on the time of the day ;)
