How to attach an external jar without wrapping it

Netbeans Platform creators recommend wrapping all external JARs into dedicated module. I don't want to. I just want to include it in my module. The way to do it (described here) is to put all needed jars in release/modules/ext folder and adding some extra XML to project.xml

Repeat this section for every jar put in ...ext folder.
Immediately you should see them in Libraries folder of you Project's view.
