I haven't looked at all of the code under o.a.c.l.text, but it sounds like a good plan. We
can start with a import of the package, and then refine and check if everything fits into
[text], and if there are no other classes/methods in [lang] that depend on this package.


There are methods in StringUtils that could be implemented in [text] too. For example, the
Levenshtein edit distance, and the Jaro Wrinkler similarity metric have been ported over as
separate objects (which needs better modeling actually, see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TEXT-21)

I think moving o.a.c.l.text and pruning StringUtils a little bit would be a great start for
an initial release of [text], and simplify [lang] a little bit too.


Cheers
Bruno
