I opened an issue report in their bugzilla to persuade them bundle-ify their jars (

a patch for them based on this approach. However, Jeremy asked me if we can provide the patch
to bundle-ify the spec jar and impl jar separately. I am fine with that. But before making
such patch, I want to confirm that, is there any problem to use 2 separate bundles instead
of one integrated bundle? I remember we have to make javamail as a single bundle before..

That's because the javamail spec was written before sun figured out how to separate the spec
and implementation so there's a lot of implementation in the spec classes, and sun's javamail
comes as one jar.  We don't do that with any other specs or implementations.
