A huge +1 from me on the reasoning behind that change.  Velocity takes
a very similar approach.

One tweak to this which I would like to propose (and thus volunteer to
carry out) is changing the name of the class from "TorqueSingleton" to
"TorqueInstance" (or something similar).  To me, "singleton" implies
that there is only a single instance allowed per class loader.  If
TorqueSingleton doesn't already allow multiple instances of itself per
class loader, this seems like a natural goal, and changing the name is
a solid step in the right direction.
