This definitely wasn't what he asked to do, and you were right to
answer him directly. I answered the question that I think he *should*
have asked.. ;-) Perhaps complicating things far too much..

There's already a javascript project on codehaus[1], I am surprised
that they do not already publish Maven artifacts for popular
frameworks. I'd recommend publish them in a variety of formats:

 * maven-remote-resource-bundle
 * jar
 * war

The first could be used to seed the second and third. Let the users
choose for themselves which works best for them..
