Have we asked the bval community to add the integration code?

'svn log' or 'svn blame' (or 'svn praise' depending on what kind of mood you're in) are usually
a good first step.

svn log

So, following commit seems to be the culprit

I assume the basic framework was copied from the jstl bundle. The NOTICE is wrong. More importantly,
it does not include the BVAL NOTICE. So, we are not complying with the AL. This changes things
and needs to be fixed, IMO.

Here's my -1.
