I don't think we should use Maven for runtime dependency resolution, as 
it's not its role.

My point was that, as our build system will have to change a lot for 
OSGI (I assume, based on the need to create multiple bundles and to 
make it easy to add metadata to them) , and we've been talking about 
moving to Maven a few times without finding sufficient motivation to do 
it, the move to OSGI might be the right time to move to Maven as well.

But it's only a suggestion, as I'm not going to work on it in the next 
few weeks, and it has (IMHO) nothing to do with runtime. Just meant to 
[RT] the idea.
