BTW, here is yet another blogger on the pain of dependencies:

"Compare Jason Hunter's excellent COS package which provides file upload 
capabilities as well as several other servlet utilities with zero 
dependencies, to the Jakarta Commons File Upload which also requires 
Commons Logging, Commons IO, Commons BeanUtils and Commons Digester."

(Note, this actually isn't true anymore of all except IO, yet the 
perception is out there damaging commons...)
