    The test jar is for packaging the test suite of `gcp-core`, but `TestCredential` is
    not part of the test suite. It is simply a class that `gcp-core` offers to other
    libraries and belongs in the main artifact. Otherwise any users will have to
    depend on the test suite in order to test their code, which doesn't make sense.
    @lukecwik @dhalperi @davorbonaci you probably each might have some opinions on this.
    The test suite for XYZ is contained in the `test-jar` artifact aka `src/test` etc etc.
Putting other things in here and asking users to take a dependency on the whole test suite
doesn't make sense.
    Maven's scopes prevent this from causing dependency hell, by simply possibly not pulling
in needed transitive dependencies.
    "user's tests"
        --(test scope) --> "TestCredential in test suite artifact"
        --(test scope)--> "any deps not also main deps"
    If the last line is nonempty, the user will be broken. It only works by luck (yes, it
usually will) because all of these deps will also be present as `compile` dependencies. So
we've just forced the user to add cruft to their pom and pull in bundles of stuff they don't
