Well, the Java code looks very similar to me. So the native code could
easily be ported to j-t-s.
It's just that this code is 100% Tomcat-dependency free. So since it's some
generic capability other projects could want, I proposed to move it to the
commons, instead of leaving it as a hidden Tomcat subproject.

I can state in the commons proposal that it is supposed to implment JSR 96
(which doesn't seem very active to me).
