We can include it into GNU Classpath. We have an external directory
which contains convenience libraries not directly part of the GNU
Classpath core libraries that are possibly under other (but
GPL-compatible) licenses.
The reason I don't want to do this with Tritonus is because we don't
have a very good track record of following upstream sources.  We
currently only have GNU JAXP as external library shipped with GNU
Classpath, and we are horribly out of date (libgcj is even more out of
date), so I am actually thinking of dropping it and point people to the
official GNU JAXP upstream sources.

It looks like people that create whole development environments out of
GNU Classpath, like kaffe is doing, are in a much better position to do
this kind of integration. We are mostly very busy with hacking on our
own sources. And it gives really independent package implementations a
chance of following their own release cycle.
