Unfortunately, making each jar a full bundle is not something we can do until 
3.0 time frame as we have some packages that are split across jars.  (like the 
API stuff in cxf-api, but the impls in the other jar, but in the same package)    
Bundle fragments are a possibility, but not something we've looked into at 
all.   Patches would be welcome.   :-)
