+1 to no longer shipping our dependencies in our tarball, but I'd note
that we've discussed doing this for several releases now, and for whatever
reason haven't managed it yet.

I think one of the sticking points was the wish to continue shipping
a with-deps version of the tarball. I don't think we should be doing
that, personally - it adds extra complexity to the release process, and
it's just odd anyway (we ship APR and Neon, but not zlib, BDB, or Serf).
