  Description     : The JVM Dynamic Languages Metaobject Protocol Library

This library aims to make it possible for objects created by a runtime for one
dynamic language to be passed to and manipulated by a different dynamic
language, running within the same JVM. More generally, it aims to provide a
facility where an arbitrary system (usually a language runtime) can intuitively
manipulate any arbitrary object model built atop of Java objects (usually the
native object model of some other language).

Basically, it provides a unified mechanism that all dynamic languages on the
JVM can use to inter-operably manipulate their own objects as well as objects
from any other language that also uses this mechanism. 

The subcomponent 'mop' is needed by JRuby.
