I need to edit my email before sending ...  Right, so the point wouldn't
be completely moot because the concern is the dependency on external
jars.  The tradeoff though, in this case, is writing your own wrapper
instead of using one provided by another package designed to support
this.  I believe promoting code reuse within Jakarta is a good thing, so
you know what my recommendation is.

Scratch that.  This is really a packaging issue.  That is, how to package
