I don't see commons-math as legacy code. Just to look around my corner 
of the world, ImageJ has a solid place in the biomedical imaging world 
and commons-math is its workhorse. Second, I think Java is, or should be 
anyway, a natural step outside of scientific computing environments like 
Matlab or Octave for when the benefits of compiled code are important. I 
think it's a lot easier to deal with in-Matlab Java than .mex files, 
with their silly interface and their planned obsolescence. I think the 
only reason Matlab-Java is used so much less is because the Matlab 
interface is so buggy and lousy. I'm planning to start contributing to 
Octave this year and see if we can't start outperforming Matlab on Java 
integration pretty quickly.
