IIRC there was any reason (?) in the beginning that this didn't worked,
so I used 'jar'. But your right -if 'pom' works now let's do it.
I've not tested this yet. But I'm sure it could work.
As we're not producing any usable jar, but multiple distributions in zip or tar.gz (that have their own deployment configuration, I was thinking a 'pom' packaging is more appropriate than 'jar'.
