Yes.. And part of the reason we have this mess is that we don't have a /lib
like thing to hold what we need.

Another option is to have a /lib area on the website and use ftp sync of
jars with version numbers (crimson-2000-12-05.jar for example) and let each
tool use what's most recent. Of course this means that the lib/ directory on
your machine will bloat, but it's no worse than all the .jars sprinkled
throughout the source trees.
