Agreed.  And it would also solve the dilemma of "too many jars" for
the not-so-bright end-user to understand.  Again, we do something
similar to this at ChannelPoint where we bundle up several core
projects (which all build on top of our CDK) into our "ChannelPoint
Solution Development Kit (CPSDK)".  Then the individual apps can just
build on top of one big cpsdk.jar instead of worrying about the
complexities of its internal projects and dependencies.  Of course,
we also have an auto-conf-like tool as well (which Kelly developed.) 
Kelly and I have been around the block once on these issues. :)
