Yes, when it's known.

It is empty.

It is empty.

Hmm, I've taken this over from the FOP build. I've never explicitely tested
the thing on Unix, yet. If you can figure out the original intent of the
chmod, it would be cool if you looked into this since you're apparently
on Unix. The chmod gets pretty much ignored on Windows.

Hmm, that's a good question. I guess it's laziness or no real need. I
don't know enough about Maven to tell whether it is actually useful to
have there. ATM, I'm not even sure if the distinction between 1.3 and
1.4 is only relevant at build time or if it also matters at runtime.
After all, we only have one xmlgraphics-commons.jar in FOP/lib and it
seems to work for both 1.3 and 1.4. I believe I put the 1.4 binary in
there. Shrug.

We've had it like this in FOP for ages and other projects do the same.
For me, the lib directory is sort of a read-only directory (from a build
POV) with the dependencies. I prefer that all generated artifacts are
placed in the build directory so that they don't interfere with version
control. Just my opinion..
