Sorry, (IAOMF)... yes, they could be, I guess. I just personally don't 
run around looking for jars to download outside of maven, if such is the 
case I usually go for the distribution tar/zip and extract the jar/ 
place it somewhere local.

My ideal though, is that there should be some way we can resolve to have 
the locations that jars exist in dist organized such that they are 
available in the maven repository as well without major headaches, I'm 
not exactly partial to how its done.

Getting on the list as we speak, will be posting there shortly. I will 
migrate all my discussions on this subject and off the infrustructure 
and jakarta lists.
