That might work, yes.
I tried to sum up all the libs we need, which ones are available via
svn:externals (i.e. which are hosted in Subversion repositories) and
of course which binaries we need:

Tools-Folder, containing fop, docbook templates, gettext tools. This
folder is needed to generate the docs and the language packs. 23MB
WiX for the installer: 4MB


the last two libs aren't available through Subversion repositories.
And their sources alone are 15MB(!). Neon is only available via http
(yet), not https which makes it impossible for me here at work to
check the source out.

The real question here is: how far should we go? I mean, should we
include the tools and wix too? Then what about perl and python? Or
should we just include all the source which are available via https
and have the others download by the users themselves?
