The POI Utils are classes we're looking to donate elsewhere and include.
These are usually classes that while are required for our mission,
are somehow outside of it. General utilities that could be used in
any project are what we would normally put here. If you see one, and you
think "gee that would be great as part of X project" then let us know.
While we wish to put these in their rightful place, we also don't want to
include a 40mb jar file just to process text strings, so that will
be a consideraton.
Currently, we're looking into which subprojects in the Jakarta Commons project
to donate these too. The "Poi Utils" package won't go away, as there may
be later classes. The idea is that "go ahead and add it, we'll merge it or
find an alternative later, just keep pounding out that poi!"
