hm, dunno if i understand your question ... do you mean removing the
actual javascript source files and let the end user fetch them?

my suggestion is, that if the license of a library allows it to be
distributed in the eggs, we should include them, because we then have
a specific snapshot of that library, and for end users this is very
convinient i think

By "end user" do you mean the person installing the egg?  In that case
the javascript files should certainly be included in the egg.  If you
mean the end user to be someone doing an svn checkout then I think the
javascript libs should not be stored in zope's repository, but rather
we should use an external to grab the latest release tag from the
javascript lib's repository.

Finally, the current layout of the z3c.javascript repository makes
doing eggs for individual subpackages (dojo, mochikit, etc.) a pain
and I don't think anyone wants to download a single 14mb egg for the
entire z3c.javascript package.  Would it make sense to put
z3c.javascript.* subpackages into the root of the zope repository?

Also, I'm about to send in a zope contributor agreement form so that
my packaging files can make it into the zope repository.
