Ah, I actually was there but missed it. Thanks for pointing it out! :-) I
also got confused for a while as well as I tried to have my <exclude>
directly under <dependencies> but it seems that I have to have it after all
my <dependency> tags (for my ivy.xml to validate against the XML-Schema
definition). It would be an improvement suggestion for the manual to specify
where in the structure a tag should occur, presently it simply mentions
which parent node in the DOM an element has which wasn't enough in this

Anyway, it's working now! :-)
