I'm not sure I'm looking at the same package.  I see 25 classes, 30 tops.
There doesn't seem to be any overlap (e.g. two concepts coded in competing
ways).  And when it's compiled, the jar is 35k.  (less than 10% of
commons-collections, which weighs in at 500k--and commons-events depends on
commons-collections to boot).

Cool.  I'll go looking for it too.
