[kepler-dev] jar file locations

Hi All,
    I have been looking into ways to simplify the Kepler structure in 
CVS (and for distribution). One of the current complexities is the large 
number (~90) of jar files under the $KEPLER/lib/jar/ subdirectory.

    One problem is the number of subdirectories under the 
$KEPLER/lib/jar/ subdirectory that just contain jar files. This 
additional subdirectory structure creates the possibility of jars with 
the same names.

Is there anyone who knows of a problem that will occur if we just 
'flatten' the subdirectorys and put ALL the jar files directly in the 
$KEPLER/lib/jar/ subdirectory?

This seems to work OK (if I just use the newest version of some of the 
repeated jars), but I don't want to break anyone's actors by mistake.
