Absolutely. I'm still not sure if we should continue to support pack200. As far as I can tell, compression is the only reason why pack200 was introduced. Once upon a time, it was convenient to reduce the size of our distributables. In the last few years, broadband has arguably replaced the need for compression.

Guus, is this still a valid statement for Maven + Pack200 support?
