Hi Adrew,

AFAIK there is no such option but still for a good reason. Such global exclusions are usually

dangerous and problematic in a long term.

If the included artifact has some dependencies it probably means it really needs them for
running. If you want to exclude all of its dependencies it's a good sign of something wrong
your whole approach. Isn't it?

PS. This question belongs more to Maven's user list.
