> Under heavy load we are seeing contention in FastDateParser.parse() on calls to TimeZone.getTimeZone().
 TimeZone.getTimeZone() is a synchronized static in the Oracle JVM.
> Our proposed solution is to add a class TimeZoneCache containing a single method getTimeZone()
which gets the requested time zone from a ConcurrentMap, and if not present, looks it up via
TimeZone.getTimeZone() and caches it before returning it.
> Then replace calls to TimeZone.getTimeZone() in FastDateParser ( and whereever else)
to calls to TimeZoneCache.getTimeZone().  
> The reason to add a separate class is because it can also be used by other applications
which heavily parse or format or do other things where TimeZone is repeatedly needed.
> Under extreme load we have seen an 50:1 improvement in calls to FastDateParser.parse().
 This saves about a ms/call in our test environment, and reduces contention.
