> The maven gang discourages:
>     <version>${blah}</version>
> One reason is that maven does *not* resolve these references before publishing a pom
in the release process. Our released poms contain property definitions and dependencies that
use them.
> If, for example, a user innocently create a setting for jetty.version that is, oh, for
jetty version 8, maven will forget, entirely that we carefully declared a dependency on version
7.
> The fix we can live with is to make all of these properties have names of the form cxf-*,
so that other people won't accidently set them.
