very true, real block are not enough.

We need two systems: a higher level one (real blocks) and a lower level 
one (jars).

There are two ways of doing a package distributor:

  1) package it yourself [rpm,deb,war]
  2) provide metadata and tools [port,gentoo]

I came to the conclusion (also after working with gump for a while) that 
2) is the way to go. [thanks to Pier for opening my eyes on this!]

but the painful thing is that not all jars are distributable standalone 
for legal reasons.
