Yes, but we can avoid depending on it more.

I was afraid of that. So that to me is actually much worse than simply
combining the repositories. That's merging them together into a single
Maven project that will always be built monolithically. I very much believe
that that will lower our ability to ensure that Hyracks is a stand-alone
project that can be delivered separately, and will definitely make it
harder for non-Asterix clients to build from source.

I don't know. To me this just seems like a big step backwards in terms of
organizational structure, and it feels like it introduces a lot of
potential downsides. There are upsides too, but there are cleaner and more
sustainable solutions to the problems that merging would fix. Merging the
repositories is a quick-and-easy hack that isn't really "solving" anything
so much as it allows us to hide from them a while longer.
