well, if somebody is not careful about legal issues, it doesn't mean 
that we shouldn't be as well, don't you think?

yeah, don't tell me! jakarta basically was created to route around 
those legal limitations for the sun license on the servlet API.

but sun is still asking for redistributors to defend them in court in 
case somebody sues them thru software that you have redistributed.

rare and stupid eventuality, I agree, but the ibiblio maven repository 
was created exactly to round around those issues.
