Well not really - If we separate the transports (making it into a
seperate jar) Synapse can always ship their transport jar instead of
the standard Axis2 one.
Axis2 distro can contain the full transport jar (or jars) if needed.
We *might* want to rethink the strategy if we are to create separate
jars for each transport - simply to create less confusion.

The usual entries. Only difference will be that the referenced classes
will be in a separate jar file.

Hmm.. again something that we would need to rethink. Recently I've
been dragged into a war on 'out of the box' functionality in  infoq
( and this is
one point that may come under it. I would say just ship everything we
have right now (having it in a separate jar is a different issue)

Yep - mine too :))
