Okay. So now you have to run that build script every time you upgrade
upgrades add new files. Essentially, you have to maintain that script
Wouldn't it make a whole lot more sense to simply get the pre-made
compressed versions of whatever you're compressing?
I mean, jQuery comes with compressed versions. WordPress uses them.
Prototype doesn't, but others maintain compressed up-to-date versions
of it. Ditto Scriptaculous. Why should WordPress maintain its own
compression schemes when it can simply use other projects directly?
Why reinvent the wheel?
