(It is getting very difficult to follow this important
discussion over various different email threads.)

Even with formal releases of third-party jars,
the sources might not be available when we want them.

I know this idea might not be possible, but let us
throw it into the melting pot anyway ...

Could we add a source tarball of every third-party
archive that we rely upon?

Then we could have a generated page similar to our
which provided easy access to those. Developers
would consult their local copy of that table.
