Subject Re: Size of common jar file

Hi, Jeremy, I like your idea of a "revolutionary" branch but (a) have no 
idea how to set one up and (b) I don't think I have the "karma" yet to 
do it.

I also was planning to do what you call "small but crucial refactoring." 
  First glance was not that promising though.  I have been able to keep 
out all the storage-related services, for the most part.

This really isn't about the embedded JDBC driver being tied to the 
engine.  It's more that the services themselves have lived a long life 
under the assumption that they're running within the engine.
