This would be way down on my list of priorities for a Jakarta project.  

If I needed mod_rewrite for testing I would install Apache on my local 
development system.  Why "reinvent the wheel" just for testing.
Besides, I would still want to test the stuff developed locally on 
Apache with mod_rewrite before putting it in production.  If it has
Apache dependencies, I would develop using Apache.
