I think you have found adequate precedent.  :-)

My understanding about junit.jar is it's OK to use (and many apache 
projects do), but not OK to commit to an asf repo because it's licensed 
under the CPL. Junit came up during the DITA* discussions, because both 
are under CPL, and that's when we were told we could not commit anything 
under CPL to the ASF repos.


*DITA: for anyone stumbling onto this post out of context, DITA is now 
dual licensed under CPL and ASL.
