As I recall the events. The only objection to code that I submitted  
for inclusion was Heikki's objection as  to where caching belonged.  
The proof of concept code was clearly not production and was not  
meant for inclusion it was meant to generate this argument. As nobody  
argued vehemently at the time I went ahead with a production version.

Well DBCP has it's issues. It is very large and not the fastest piece  
of code in the world.

So we basically have one nay vote holding this up ?
