Asking on the list is definitely a good idea before coding excessively :-)

Where did you get the quote in the subject line?

I would say based on my review of StrTokenizer tonight that it has all 
the right methods and looks about complete. However it may not be fully 
tested, and that may be the task to do.

Also in this package, StrBuilder is complete, with the possible 
exception of adding a subBuilder() method to allow operations on a range 
of the builder. But that is quite complex to write and test.

VariableFormatter needs the most work and had outstanding patches in 
various places.
