Really?  I never contributed to Avalon.

The most likely case is this is code originally written for Ant, then
copied to Avalon from where it was copied to Plexus and most likely
Commons as well.  commons-compress' seed as well as that of commons-exec
have taken similar journeys.

You might want to check against the Ant code base to apply the bug fixes
that have piled up over the 10 years that came after Peter Donald copied
the code to Avalon ;-)
