But this is much more than I want to solve with it at the moment. I just want to
replace the jars.xml with the gump.xml. We still can have our "check jars" so
that we are nagged if gump is broken (at least for this issue). At least we
avoid the duplicate maintenance of jars.xml and gump.xml that exists at the
moment. One day Cocoon and Gump nicely plays together again, we can give all to
Gump and remove our specific checking stuff. Short steps towards a big aim :)



PS: Arrgghh! This nasty "You seem to be top-posting. Don't do that."
I only had "... gump ..." without any >> infront.
