We'll probably just leave it as is now.  Since we already require the
user to have JDK 1.6 to build, it's not a stretch to say "put this
file that you already have in your classpath before you build Pivot"

After I sent this email, Greg did a diff and actually verified that he
originally got it from Tomcat 5.5, so in the end, all that's required
is to update the text in NOTICE, but yes, I see your point :)

There was no issue raised here, but we have since done so in the trunk
just to clean up the dependencies since Linux users and Eclipse users
are likely to have it already anyway.  So I figured why not cross-port
it and make the decision for 1.1 that much easier :)
