-1 for YUI. If no other WYSIWYG can be found, than I think none should 
be deployed (or put the tinymce on google code too).

I think a very important issue with these "external" packages/jars is 
their version: I think their version number should be the *same* as the 
click distribution that fits to.

It is just a pain in the a.. to match all the time the various component 
versions with the correct framework (I'm speaking about other frameworks 
:),  but it looks like click is adopting the same bad strategy :( ).

Please fix this.

Thank you,
