I'll try and be clearer.

The Tomcat 7 series is using a subset of BCEL trunk for annotation
scanning and has identified zero bugs in BCEL. This usage is tested by
Gump (via Tomcat 7's unit tests), the Servlet 3.0 TCK (every release
must pass) and has been included in every Tomcat 7 release.

Tomcat included BCEL via an svn cp from BCEL/trunk to Tomcat/trunk
followed by some local changes in Tomcat (package renaming to avoid
clashes and removal of features we don't need) and has been kept in sync
with BCEL trunk since that copy was made.

We did identify some licensing issues with the work in trunk to provide
Java 5 support but these were resolved and BCEL trunk updated accordingly.
