Seems like it would make more sense to remove Klasses.jar from
the repository altogther and have the nightly kaffe-snap script
rebuild it from the sources.

There are several similar but different states a source tree can
be in, including:

  1. Freshly checked out of the repository 
  2. Distribution-ready

#1 should contain no derived files like Klasses.jar. #2 should only
contain those derived files that are necessary (eg, Klasses.jar --
a user needs kaffe in order to rebuild it -> chicken and egg problem)
