Sorry, I didn't explain it well. The normal package goal will build
all the jars you want except for the -all JAR. There is a goal in the
assembly plugin that takes all the others and build the -all JAR (and
at the same time, runs the first process so it is the only goal
needed). Is that clearer?

So everything is just a normal JAR, and you add an extra plugin at the
top level to build the -all one.

There's an open bug in JIRA already to allow multiples at once, and
we'll make src + bin the defaults.

Yes, I've pushed it up the priority list.
