Why didn't you just put the util.concurrent version in your local
repository then?

I think we've discussed this before, but it should be possible for Cocoon
to have its own repository with only the jars in it that need to be there.
It can use ibiblio as a secondary repository for the ones that can't be
located in Cocoon's.

I'm not sure about this ant task, but one nice thing about maven is that
the jars end up in your local repository, so if you get a new version of
Cocoon only jars that have changed will be downloaded.
