and the upload. It wouldn't be a true deliverable. And, I'm not convinced that we even need
to do such a thing. Even without a few extra JARs of our own, there are still all the Commons
JARs. (Though I suppose we could roll together those too.) I'd tend to leave this for a end-user
to do, say if there were distributing a particular Struts distribution to several teams in
an enterprise. But it would be nice to provide a tool for this (if someone had the itch to
write it.) It really sounds like a job for Sun :)

Did you need something beyond what ANT already provides?

An untested example:

     <target name="bundle.struts">
         <jar jarfile="lib/struts-all.jar">
             <zipgroupfileset dir="lib/struts">
                 <include name="**/*.jar" />
