    I am trying  understand what the goal is with these changes.  Are the following the goals?
    
     1. Make it easier for Accumulo developers to maintain accurate NOTICE and LICENSE files.
     2. Communicate to users that dependencies are provided as an example that worked with
a single version of Hadoop at release time.  Explain that users may need different dependencies
depending on their environment, later bug fix versions of dependencies, etc.
    
    Given these two goals, the script clearly accomplishes the first.  However I think the
2nd goal could be accomplished in other ways.  For example a Readme in the Accumulo lib directory
communicating information about dependencies would accomplish this.
