Some details on the problem:  Through Maven 2 transitive dependencies, 
the OSGi bundles end up getting antlr, commons-collections, 
commons-lang, shared-asn1, and shared-ldap embedded inside of them.  The 
difference in size is, for example, 100K bulked up to 2MB.  All because 
of the dep on shared-ldap.  Now, we could do what I did in a number of 
the bundles and exclude everything that's not needed but that is a messy 
solution and it only treats the symptoms.

I like the idea of revamping the project structure.  This would also 
address an opinion I stated recently, that we should rev the 
protocol-providers separate from the core, to reflect their varying 
levels of functional state:  Kerberos and Change Password are in good 
shape, DNS and NTP are OK, DHCP won't do much for you.
