That's true but that is not what I meant. I've been thinking about 
adding the dependency jars to the binary distribution zip file so users 
don't have to search for the dependencies themselves.

It is true that most users will add the jar files to an existing project 
but even then we should state more obvious which dependencies are 
necessary (e.g. see which transitive dependencies of clerezza and jena 
are really needed for which tasks).

I don't want to delay the release with this even further but I think 
this would be better for novices that are just getting started.
