Subject Re: Depending on bouncycastle

I think it is best to think of those as two different modules (because, 
after all, they are).

Maven added the "classifier" field to deal with that (the issue being 
that folks don't want to use different module names for JDK version 
dependency) and Ivy supports that now too.

You can define an Ant property in your build to supply the right "jdk15" 
or "jdk16" value for the classifier.
