What about just bundling the Axiom classes needed in the Abdera jar? XOM
does this with Jaxen to have built in XPath without an extra dependency. You
can also distribute a non bundled version in case people need that. This
would hit two birds with one stone - removing extra crap that is not needed
for Abdera and removing a classpath dependency.
