Subject Re: two versioning problems with Lucene

I'm with Otis on this one.  Ant's <jar> task elegantly solves the issue 
identified with repackaging.  If you want to repackage with another 
tool, then it is your responsibility to address the manifest merging 
somehow yourself.

Besides, if you're using make, then you can probably pretty easily whip 
up a Perl script that will do this merging. :))
