Is it really much more complicated to download?
It does not have to be always on demand...

Let's assume we distribute


without any external jars and we have a
repository with each individual jar.


If we could (are alound) to provide an archiv
for convenience,


We'd only have *two* instead of one downloads.

After the download you have all dependencies
on disk. The download-on-demand system should
utilize the archiv and no further downloads-on-demand
are necessary since everything is already there.

IMO this should not make much of a difference
for anyone who wants to try Cocoon.
