Jackrabbit is currently (mostly) based on Java 1.4, that doesn't yet
have the java.util.concurrent library.

There's the backport-util-concurrent library [1] that we could
(should?) migrate to before upgrading to Java 5.

However, last time I checked the required Jackrabbit modifications are
not trivial (some of the classes and semantics in concurrent 1.3.4 are
different from java.util.concurrent) so unless someone wants to
scratch that itch and provide a good patch for this I'm inclined to
stick with the what we have now.
