That's a possibility for certain. As a client/user of any component, I am never fond of figuring
out which of a bunch of jars I am supposed to be using. This all seems like a good reason
to push for a 1.3 or 2.0 release to clean up these issues.

Clearly Chainsaw V1 should go since we have a V2. I do not use LF5 so I do not have an op
about that...
