I am starting to wonder if ext should be a root directory for some
subprojects. For example, AOP could be one subproject, utils another, AS400
a third. Then we wouldn't need to make the dependencies optional, but it
will lead to more jars.

FWIW, I worked with Java on OS/400 about 8 or 9 years ago. It had really,
really ugly APIs back then. I don't have access to an AS/400 any more so I
can't really help with that.  My only concern with bringin them into SLF4J
would simply be that you would be the only committer who could actually test
