Yes, I remember you raised important compatibility issues when we tried
to release 2.1, so it saved us from doing big mistakes.

-1. I think it should be separated. As our components are picked up as
dependencies to higher level projects, they don't always know precisely
how they are managed. So the jar may end up in there top level
application just because they throw everything they find the binary
distribution in.
