Subject RE: [jira] Updated: (AXIS2-249) Exessive number & size of filesgenerated from WSDL

+1 on breaking out the war and binary download and slimming down the
kit.

I would like to keep WS-Security support in the primary Axis2 distro.  I
think it is very valuable to have this support 'out of the box' as a
selling point for Axis, similar to its support of WS-Addressing.
