Yes, thanks. This is a known problem.

I proposed a long time ago as a simple solution to have all jars
(that don't belong to the core) in lib/optional. The build process will not
automatically copy all jars from there to WEB-INF/lib but only those
required for the included blocks.
This should be a simple fix to the current build system, but due to lack
of time I never did it.
