That's exactly the problem I have with this library system. Isn't Apache 
stuff that common because of its ease of use? I don't want to do license 
checking for every dependent project I get from somewhere. Moving this 
to the users is just a poor move and should be avoided if possible. It's 
not just about downloading one more JAR.
