IIRC this was done for the convenience of those who have most of jakarta 
checked out and because no one has ever been to agree on any better

i'm not really convinced that the trouble of manually adding half a dozen 
properties to a file is so great that we need to 
do anything too radical.

maybe we could reference (by default) the jars in jakarta-site2/lib. this 
would isolate us from problems with later velocity versions and 
jakarta-site2 is a small module which most jakarta committers will want 
access to sooner or later.
