Obviously they cannot share all the same artifact coordinates. Using e.g. 
the nar-plugin to create shared libraries (dll or so) from C/C++ code, the 
plugin typically uses a classifier that is assembled by Compiler/OS/Arch.

However, the repository is defining the naming scheme. All you can do is to 
use something like the dependency-plugin to create a local copy that is 
stripped by version and classifier. So, the question is, if that's the way 
to go with daemon.
