Subject RE: Dependency configuration scenario

Question 1)
So is it best practice to separate every single dll into its own
It is not a problem for me to do it this way.
If I would like to create different modules groupings - what is the
recommended method?
E.g. Nhibernate-full-2.0 -> a.dll, b.dll, c.dll, d.ll, e.dll
      Nhibernate-basic-2.0 -> a.dll, b.dll

If I create separate modules (as above) the dependency resolver always looks
for a file called "Hibernate-full-2.0". How can I tell it that the module is
just a shell for pointing to other dependencies?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl"
<ivy-module version="1.0">
      <dependency org="3rdparty" name="nhibernate" rev="">
     <dependency org="3rdparty" name="Iesi.Collections" rev=""/>
