I hear you.  But where do you draw the line?

There are a lot of popular libraries we also could include besides Gpars
and Scriptom (e.g. Geb <>, Spock
<>, groovy-wslite
<>, http-builder-ng
<>, Gru
<>, gstorm
<>, dru <>,
GroovyServ <>, Gaiden
<>, shoogr
<>, etc) -- and those are just some ones
with commits in the last year that aren't for building or hosting web
stuff.  There are many more besides this.  And because it's just a bundle
including whatever the latest versions were at the time of a Groovy release
for a specific selection of projects (and not a project like sdkman),
there's no way to mix & match versions or upgrade independent of a Groovy
Although I guess if we want the installer to include a bunch of different
library options, maybe we could have the installer fetch the requested jars
from the internet, I suppose.  Though I'm not sure how the file GUIDs would
work if we did that.  MSIs I've seen that do that (like have .NET Framework
as a dependency) usually invoke a separate MSI for each dependency.
