I think there was a misunderstanding.

commons-io-1.3.1.jar -> should go into the plugin (because other code
does not seem to need it)

commons-logging-1.1.1.jar -> tricky since in 08 we have

xmlgraphics-commons-1.2.jar -> not in 0.8 but needed by the plugin
(should go into the plugin)

IMO the plugin should work in 0.8 if the libs go back. We can release
the plugin in version 0.3  (compatible with 0.8) and then raise the
version to 0.4.
