Correct. Ideally we'd like to outsource the meaning of further binary
artifacts away from the core 8Mib abcl.jar.

Agreed. There's an example of introspecting the java CLASSPATH in the
code for loading ABCL-CONTRIB which I just have to clone and adopt.
Unless someone beats me too it…
Please let me know if this doesn't work for you.

We will provide the ability to download these artifacts yourself with an
interactive restart in abcl-1.1.0, as you have to ensure that your local
licensing terms apply. Me? I'm a BSD guy living in penguin land…
