I'd be very strongly against that. The exact versions required should be
downloaded from a stable location as part of the build process. Maven
should do this for you. Alternatively take a look at the Tomcat build
file that has a simple dependency download with the build script.

Given the widespread use of Maven in Commons, I'd suggest that Maven is
the way to go.
