[antlr-interest] Runtime-only JAR?

In ANTLR versions prior to 2.7.2 there were seperate JAR files,
antlr.jar and antlrall.jar. antlr.jar had the runtime library and
antlrall.jar had the runtime library plus everything else. As of 2.7.2,
antlr.jar now contains everything (i.e. it is the equivalent of
antlrall.jar) and there is no seperate runtime library JAR.
I think that the seperate runtime library JAR was very useful because of
its small size. It is only 1/6th the size of antlrall.jar:
compressed 360K 60K
uncompressed 685K 108K
With web-deployed applications (applets, web start applications,
NetBeans Autoupdate, etc.), the JAR file size is important. So, I would
like to see the runtime-only JAR file added back to the ANTLR build
system. Actually, for the applications I have it would be best if there
were two JAR's, one for the runtime lib and one that had everything
except the runtime lib.
Does this sound like a reasonable change?
