But what if your webapp is dependent on a third party jar? If you want to
preserve history, or rather make sure you have a repeatable build and
configuration of your software (and historical), wouldn't you want to put
external components in subversion?

This question ping-pongs in my mind, because another alternative would be to
use Maven to manage dependencies. However, even in this case IMO the whole
Maven concept of a dependency repository is nothing more than a dumbed down
version of a version control system.
