This is why I asked for a released version of that JAR.  That way we
could always say Ant release X.Y contains xml-apis.jar version U.V.
If there is no released version, I'd probably veto adding an arbitrary
snapshot to Ant distributions.

Break that JAR into several JARs?

I've done so for Ant's CVS version, that is what made Stephane start
the thread 8-) - prior to that we had Crimson 1.1.1 and the
corresponding jaxp.jar.  Stephane wants to add xml-apis.jar to get the
transformation part of JAXP as well (the interfaces only, so that we
can compile the optional parts of Ant that depend on TraX).

This has been the latest release of crimson when Ant 1.4 has been
released and I think Conor simply missed the 1.1.3 release of
Crimson.  Ant's CVS has been updated.
