I think we're required to have incubator- there.  The group Id actually 
was directory up until about 6-9 months ago.  Personally I would not 
mind having it revert back to directory especially since we're probably 
really close to exiting the incubator.  However I'd like to double check 
with Noel and the incubator PMC to make sure it's ok when a project is 
this close to exiting incubation.  It makes sense to me to drop 
incubator- as well from the group ID.

Good point.  Basically the BER provider concept comes from the fact that 
we used Snacc4J in the ldap-common package to encode and decode LDAP 
messages.  I made a little pluggable provider based framework to avoid 
dependencies on any one specific codec implementation such as Snacc4J.  
Eventually Snickers came to be and I wrote a provider for it.  In the 
ldap/trunk there are two projects of any significance: common and the 
snacc-provider.  I think perhaps the snickers provider belongs here as a 
peer maven project.   Perhaps you got that notion as well.

Ahhhh a timezone dependent test case.  I thought I had fixed this at A/C 
hehe.  Looks like the deltas are siting on my laptop.  For the time 
being I'll just comment out the code until I figure out how best to test 
the method.  Sorry about that its all my bad.

Great thanks a lot Brett!
