Actually, for Gpars, that's in the Groovy binary zip, so that's
included already.

(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 release.

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.
