Yes - but we'll have to take it with their projects ( jakarta-commons
mostly, also struts, etc ). For mx4j it's a bit more complicated - IMHO 
all external .jars should be in an apache-wide repository and approved 
by somone who can check all details.

I don't think it's a good idea for every project to distribute jars for
all other projects. We'll still have to publish a list with the 
dep. version numbers of the "stable" release.
