What is the definition of an optional dependency ? It depends on the use 
of the library. If I use a plist configuration most of the time I would 
not want the commons-codec dependency to be excluded for example.

There are several dependency sets depending on the features you are 
interested in as described here:

http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/configuration/dependencies.html

It's not obvious to decide what is optional imho.
