That is a valid point.

However, how do you propose to make the Web Interface functional out of

On many OSes such as Windows, the package manager does not exist. Some 
Linux distributions might not be packaging jQuery. It would be a bit far 
stretched to ask users to download and install jQuery by themselves, no?
