If I understand it correctly, isn't this resolution process only  
involved when the module is having its dependencies resolved for the  
first time, prior to publish?  Once it's published, the dependencies  
are fixed in the published version of ivy.xml, which is anchored by a  
versioned repository. So when this module A participates in the  
resolution process of another module B, the original ivy settings  
under which A was resolved shouldn't matter at all.

...right?  (argh this thing makes my head hurt. :-) )
