the issue is a bit worse.  the fact that some key artifacts (such as
Thrift) are not in the official Maven repositories means that projects
end up depending on different versions of these.

for instance, I am in the process of implementing a Thrift service
which is backed by a Cassandra store.  the current assumption is that
I need to hide the dependencies inside OSGi modules so that I can live
with multiple Thrift versions.  (In fact, I've spent all day trying to
figure out how I should go about doing this in the least painful way

(I was hoping to have an OSGi bundle which embeds all dependencies for
Hector by the end of today, but it seems I have to continue work on
that tomorrow.  What I have so far isn't....pretty :-).

that being said, Thrift has another RC coming up and if this one
sticks we should hopefully see Thrift in the official Maven
repositories soon.  Hopefully Cassandra will follow?
