Well we can reject any submission if it causes a regression and  what I
am  suggesting  is that any incompatiblity of jars within the same major
version or unreasonable jar file growth be considered a regression.   
Can we make that part of the vote?

Tests are  always good.     I have to confess my first month with
Cloudscape,  I made the mistake of pulling a server class into the tools
jar because it looked like something I could use.    It came in  later
as a high priority customer bug  labeled  "ij needs a DIET!".  Your test
would have sure helped me out.
