Well, I assume they reimplemented libpq so that java would not rely on a
platform-specific library like libpq.

Type 4 drivers are the norm in the Java world. You would find it much more difficult to get traction among Java users, in my experience, with a driver that's not pure Java.

And in any case, I think it's a good thing to have two significant independent implementations of the wire protocol out there.

Note too that the maintainer of the Perl DBD driver has opined in my hearing that he would like to be able to move from relying on libpq to having a pure Perl driver (although personally speaking I'm glad he hasn't.)
