Escher is an external library, just like GTK or Qt. Only that it happens
to be programmed in Java. The original author isn't actively working on
it atm. BUT I do, and he made me co-maintainer of Escher. I already did
a couple of fixes to get the X peers working and will do a realease
soon.

I agree, having this in external/ would make things easier, but it seems
a cleaner approach to handle it like other libs that we depend on. What
do others think?

Cheers, Roman
