(i'm not knowledgable about this part of the code base so hopefully
someone who knows more will jump)

the NetMatcher implementation in 2.3 seems like a reasonable candidate
for a micro-library such as commons-net

the implementation has been refactored in the 3.x branch so that an
external DNS service can be used. so, james already maintains an
