We're actually going to be going in the opposite direction with OSGi when we break things down into fine grained services.  We may reach 100 jars if we do it right.

We can use an assembly to create one jar if that makes people happy.  But this JIRA is a waste considering our direction.

Reduce the number of jars

             Fix For: 1.5.1

We have a hell too much jars. We should reduce the bumber of jars to 2 or 3 for the core serveur, plus one for each suported protocol.

shared-ldap.jar make sense, so is apacheds.jar, maybe daemon.jar plus :
- protocol-ldap.jar
- protocol-kerberos.jar,
- protocol-changepw.jar,
- protocol-dhcp
- protocol-dns
- protocol-ntp

We may also have one more jar, for the backend, like a backend-jdbm.jar
