I'll grant you that I generally use 'jsk-platform.jar' and 'jsk-lib.jar'
together.  Having said that, I can picture a minimal client that doesn't
use eventing, etc, so could get by with just 'jsk-platform.jar' (for
instance a web application), and I don't see anything wrong with the
platform jar reasoning in 'doc/release-notes/index.html' so I'm not
inclined to change it.

Most of the other jars in the lib directory are the contents of service
implementations or command line utilities packaged as executable jars,
so I don't really see a great problem with them.
