OSGi has a different view of the world, on account of a clear separation 
between published interfaces, implementations and dependency packages. 
I'd be interested to see how you get on with Ivy -and how Ivy and Ant 
could evolve to work better with OSGi dev. I have a colleague who is 
trying to work out how to get RMI to work with OSGi properly, which is 
v. hard because serialization info doesnt include any way to identify 
which bundle something came from.
