I personally don't think we should be distributing any external  
dependencies.  Whoever builds the releases needs to have the  
dependencies locally, but 3rd party JARs, even Apache ones, should  
not go along for the .tar/zip ride IMO.  In the same manner that Ant  
doesn't ship with junit.jar or any other 3rd party dependencies, it  
still was compiled with them.

I'm happy to go with the flow of the consensus though, and if folks  
want the other JARs to go along then that's fine also.  There should  
definitely be some docs that explain these 3rd party dependencies,  
and I'll add that to the regex docs that I'm going to work on tomorrow.
