i agree with craig (but then, i find that i usually do).

it's important to have our releases available independently but that's no 
reason not to also offer in addition jar's containing all dependencies.

so, i'd like to be able to offer a jar containing the latest versions of 
all the commons goodies (but i've never been able to get the combo project 
to run).

i also think that the String Taglib should consider offering a 
ready-to-run release which contained the commons-lang classes as well as 
an minimal release containing just the taglib code.
