I agree.

One thing I like about org is that most things work out of the box.
While I can download/install/compile/whatever ditaa.jar, having to do so
adds a step. This extra step will result in fewer people using the
combination of org and ditaa. I do not think that is a good direction.

Comparing ditaa to latex/java/C/such does not feel fair, since distros
support standard software, and ditaa does not seem to qualify. But this
is an assumption. At least my distro does not support ditaa in a
package.

Just my opinion. As always, happy to leave the final decision to the
wise ones.

Have fun and stay safe!

Jarmo
