It's a simple thought, like I said, shooting from the hip.
Commons-Logging has an unfortunate history
(, and the deeper / higher it
is on the classpath, the worse the potential.  It doesn't get much
deeper on the classpath than the endorsed repository, so putting
commons-logging there made me instinctively cringe a bit.

Now, commons-logging has been getting better with time, and I give
credit to its maintainers for this, but there are some fundamental
classloading issues at play here...
