yep, main issue ATM is some can't or doesn't maitain the version we
use - excepted for security issues (we are bound to a EE version for
instance). It meanse it will be forgotten in few years but it also
means we can get the same with [lang3] and [lang4] so clearly
something to tackle at [commons] level. We can't just ask everybody to
update each time IMHO.
