The methods in visad.python.JPythonMethods are
designed for easy use when programming VisAD in Jython.
The methods in visad.util.DataUtility are utility
methods that VisAD developers thought would be of
general use when working with VisAD Data objects.
There is overlap because the methods were coded by
different developers working on different areas of
VisAD. If the methods truly perform identically then
one of them should probably just call the other to cut
down on lines of code.
Use whichever method you are more comfortable with.
