I figured if people were interested they were reading the lists I was.

I'm not sure of why the above is useful, though. For me, as a maven user, 
I don't point at ibiblio by default anyway, as it's far slower than my 
local mirror. Having Apache host the jars would be less useful to me as a 
user, as I believe it's not as bandwidth capable as ibiblio.
