Bouncycastle has some interesting provenance issues that has caused
the Eclipse IP team some grief in the past. I hope when they look at
it again, it will be less of an issue this time around. However, this
won't be done until after Indigo due to the IP backlog (hence, post
EGit/JGit 1.0)

This seems like the best approach for now if people want this
functionality sooner than later.
