We currently get the ICU binary and source bundles directly from the ICU team and simply include them in the build.  No ziping, tarring, jaring, slicing, dicing or even julien'ing.  The complete built bundles do happen to be in CVS somewhere to facilitate repeatable builds but they are just stashed there in complete, built form.  Does a source JAR in the form we currently ship work for you?

Unfortunately I did mean the ICU and SSH projects.  Basically assume that Eclipse was out of your picture but you were including some random wad of Java code for some function and that wad used ICU.  Would you expect the project creating the wad to also have the source for ICU in their repo?  Map this out to people who use commons logging, log4j etc etc.  

BTW, what do you do for JSCH?  We don't even have/ship source for that.
