We could do that, but I think we should have a solution for non-Docker
users, too.

Yes, we'd publish it in Nexus and also BinTray/SourceForge.

People would download it, unzip it into the "modules" directory of their WF
instance and could start using the new ORM version (provided the larger
scheme of integration hasn't changed, so the JipiJapa bits in WF continue
to work as is).

Ok, cool. I'll take a look then.
