the reasoning behind the prefix goes like this. apache mime4j is the
trademark. anyone can produce another jar and call it mime4j. if
someone produces an apache-mime4j jar with nefarious or substandard
contents then apache is in a stronger position.

but i don't think this has been written in stone and dates back to the
misty old days. if people prefer just mime4j then ask on legal discuss
for a definitive modern ruling.
