For SomnifugiJMS, I was able to use an interface/driver pattern to  
separate out a backport version and a juc version of the code base. I  
stopped there to wait for retroweaver.

If you can wait, or want to help out, Toby plans to use the backport  
in retroweaver. That's what stopped me from branching the Somnifugi  
properly into 1.4 and 5.0 versions. Helping retroweaver use the  
backport is at least a more interesting option than adding another  
layer of abstraction.

Hope that helps,
