Well, it's obviously a choice up to the individual projects; this was
just a suggestion to get started, and how Xalan plans to implement this

Yes, I recognize that this would be code duplication and a generally
bad thing for maintenance, etc.; but I tend to be more careful with
ease-of-use issues than most of the community seems to be.

The copies checked into the individual projects are 'backup' files, for
the case where a lazy developer who checks out only the xml-yourproject
module wants to do a build.  In the past, some folks have complained
about having to checkout extra repositories to build their own project.
If everyone can agree on having to checkout xml-commons before being
able to build from their own checkedout module, then we don't need to
bother with the extra copies.
