Actually, I have the ok from Runtime product management to let me manage the
download server and place pom.xmls as needed.  But that's about it. And they
want assurance that licenses are being accepted before downloading.  So, if
we can make this work by giving me or showing me how to set up pom.xmls I
will go ask for login credentials to the downloads server, setup a couple of
folders and we can start actually trying it.

Adobe does want to support us, but the fact is, Adobe isn't getting any
money from this so they aren't going to spend a lot of time on it.

I believe I get to control a new set of folders containing runtime SDKs.
The runtime team will probably keep using their current scheme.  They will
not update our new folder area when a new release goes out so we will have
to keep track and maintain that ourselves.  But I think I can use whatever
folder naming scheme you want to use.
