I'd go ahead and commit...

How about the jaxb API license ? Is it distributable ? I fear it's 
probably the worst in terms of the dependencies, just like JAXP...
(plus you probably need the jaxp extensions like QName or namespace, or 
?). Parts of this might be there if you managed to install the 
dependencies for messenger...
These kind of horrible non-downloadable dependencies should be quite 
cared about, I think!

Isn't JAXMe Apache ? Then I don't think it's a problem... do it in one

And if you even can manage a "tour-de-force" like the famous "xml-apis" 
to include jaxb and related, that would even be greater!
