I'm not sure of why the above is useful, though. For me, as a maven user,
I don't point at ibiblio by default anyway, as it's far slower than my
local mirror. Having Apache host the jars would be less useful to me as a
user, as I believe it's not as bandwidth capable as ibiblio.
is there a 'why' to this effort?
