> org.apache.oro has been archived for three years and it may be good to remove the dependency as Java has had built in regexes for quite some time now. There don't seem to have been any specific Perl5 functionality needed in the regexes so unless there are specific threading or performance reasons for continuing to use oro it may be time to lose the dependency. Attached patch needs to be checked thoroughly as I am rusty with Java and the unit tests are sparse.
