This is useful. I'd like to suggest we call the class UnifiedJEXL
(ofcourse, there is no "unification" in JEXL, but I think it will be
unambiguous and still convey the right meaning at the same time --
atleast it does so for me).

At a quick glance, I only have some minor nits with the patch:
 * Some files have whitespace only changes (,
 * I'd avoid changing imports style where not strictly necessary (
 * Some changes WRT throws clauses in signatures (whether thats
strictly necessary)
 * In spirit with surrounding code, braces for ifs

Ideally, it'd be good to go over everything in JIRA and resolve it
(which doesn't mean fixing everything, could be deferred, won't fixes,
invalids etc.).

Along the lines of:
 * Triage JIRA, improve test coverage (where needed) -- help is needed
for this step :-)
 * Publish intent to produce v2.0, solicit feedback (such as here)
 * Produce RC when above points are done towards eventual release
