I think we should have our own copies, because we will most likely want 
to break them up and distribute them piecemeal any way. For example, we 
don't want to include the entire osgi.jar file with the framework, 
because most of the service definitions are not necessary. Likewise, 
service implementations will likely only want to include their specific 
service interfaces, not everything else. Having them in our repository 
makes this stuff pretty easy just by selecting what you want to JAR up.
