We're quickly getting at diminishing returns here. The rome jar adds 
only about 1% to the size of the jackrabbit-webapp.

The bouncycastle stuff is heavier, but it's also much more useful. It's 
needed not only for read-protected PDFs but for ones with any kind of 
embedded protection (modify, print, etc.). Dropping bouncycastle would 
measurably reduce functionality for quite a few users, so I'd only 
consider doing that if there's a convincing case for why the required 
extra space is troublesome.
