If it's ASF licensed code, then having the source code in our repository
isn't a problem. BSD licensed code is pretty much equivalent.

However, In projects where the source code is being maintained somewhere
else, I really don't like keeping duplicate copies of all that source in
separate files in our workspace -- it's a maintenance issue. I'd rather take
the following approach:

If we can redist the binaries with no problem according to its license, then
we can check in a .jar file containing the classes on a frequency that we're
comfortable with.
