If you just want to remove the extra features, then you can do that by 
doing some JAR editing. That's not very hard to do.

I don't see that much to remove. I assume JNDI is the ever popular 
target, but I didn't notice it causing major problems (either 
performance or reliability), so I'd say it's not worth it.

Historically, the major reliability problems have been in the connectors 
/ thread pooling code.
