Well, I guess they are probably not concerned with looking bad ...  I
know I wouldn't be -- Tomcat is a nice tool.  I just mention c3p0
because it and another one (can't remember the name) are getting more
recommendations these days than DBCP.  And like you said, DBCP doesn't
seem to be getting a lot of developer attention.  I'm not sure that
Tomcat would ship with anything under a non-Apache license agreement,
though.  I could be wrong.
