That would be the right route I think. Try removing jsr166y.jar as a
dependency run the tests, and I hope nothing breaks.

I am not sure about this, but that is because I haven't thought about it, not
because I think it is necessarily a bad idea. In the post JDK8 world, the data
parallel stuff in GPars is somewhat less important because of Stream. GPars
actors, active objects, daflow, and CSP are the main features and I wonder if
they should just be bundled together. Separating them means people have to do
more configuration, is that a barrier too far for what, after all seems to be
a not used library.

The total lack of interest in the published GPars being so old, and progress
on GPars 2 being so slow is a real turn off to putting in any effort on this.
