Not progress for you, but maybe progress for others.   I think I read that
ORO is still going to build an "all" jar which includes everything, so it
shouldn't make a difference.

For every person who wants a library to involve one and only one jar, there
is another who wants to be able to pick and choose from smaller jars to
decrease the overall size of their applicable bundle.

I'm not sure which side I'm on, but I've heard people from both sides 
pretty loudly, so I think the best thing is to try and satisfy both, 
which is what
seems to be happening here.
