Well I haven't looked at specifc cases in optional package anything that is
gpl'ed disallows using any method names including constructors which means
you have to do everything through reflection. A real PITA especially if you
need to call lots of methods :/.

well I would like it there aswell but doing so would require a PITA
programming model (ie through reflection). And it would still require a
seperate download - so if you wanted it you may aswell package up the task
with jcvs and put it on a web page.
