Option a) was used cause we didn't have separate tcnative
release when it was introduced.
Since this is now a separate downloadable bundle we should
use the option b) and populate Java classes during
download task when building Tomcat.

We cannot use that option because of separate release cycles.
I was trying to keep them together, but other folks didn't agree with
that, so now we'll have to choose the option b), which is fine
as well. It needs some build process changes, but that shouldn't
be a problem.
