can we leave it in svn, but drop it from the release?  logistically,
what is the best way to do this?  Make a branch now, remove it from
/trunk, after release copy it from the branch back into /trunk?

That seems like the best way to kick the can down the road.  I agree
an off-the-shelf apache license jquery client is great.
