Subject Maven users, please try cxf-bundle......

I've been working on the maven-shade-plugin that we use to create the 
bundle jar to hopefully make it produce deployable artifacts that are 
actually usable from maven.    I'd like help testing that if at all 

Basically, the with the old bundle, the jar was usable, but the pom 
pretty much wasn't.   The dependencies were all optional and such so 
trying to get the correct stuff was not fun.   Also, the source jar was 
not available so debugging in eclipse sucked. 

The new shade plugin has flags to create a source jar as well.   It also 
can strip out the dependencies that were shaded and promote any of their 
transitive dependencies into the pom.   The result is that the pom 
should be usable as a dependency directly with the transitives all 
picked up.   

Anyway, I'd appreciate it if any of you that are working with maven 
projects that depend on CXF could give it a try.   I'm mostly curious if 
the dependencies are all OK or not.   I've deployed new SNAPSHOTS of 
both 2.0.4 and 2.1 that should be using this.
