The standalone connector (at least the future version of it) for TC 4.x is
also in j-t-c, and I'd like it to work with both versions of TC with only
one codebase. Why ? It saves time, and that also avoid mistakes (like
forgetting to apply a patch on one of the versions).

This connector would then be optional with TC 4.0.x (use it if you need
better performance), and would be the default in the next 4.x release (if of
course, it turns out it's better than the current one).
