    WOResourceManager should be able to find everything usually in a
    framework bundle inside a jar _file_. I'd love to see us move to file
    based frameworks (as opposed to bundle-based) as a universal default.
    Just jar up all the wo component files along with the classes, plists,
    Properties files etc. Would sure make everyone's life easier...

    If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space.
