The dependency is very soft.  It does not have to be included at all,
although we can have Instrument-Manager released with the "experimental"
feature (which seems pretty stable BTW).  As long as it is marked that
way, we should be OK.  If AltRMI is not in the classpath, the standard
transport is always available.

They are not needed by ECM, but they are by Cocoon.  Cocoon needs to
provide binary back compatibility for any of their users who have used
those classes.

Besides, they might have some of their own code that needs migration.
