I agree on the priority. We've already tried to move
the multipart code to commons-codec, where nobody
had an interest. Maybe things will be different this
time.
However, if we extend our activities to WebDAV at some
point in time, we'll probably find it convenient to have
the required multipart support under our control. For
the moment, my only concern is whether we'll have the
functionality of 3.1 covered in 4.0, so we can drop
the (official) support for 3.1 eventually.

cheers,
  Roland
