Will it work?

Of course I am. Except I have no idea of what you just said. :)

I'm sure it isn't. The other night, Peter (the Neubauer kind, not the
Kriens kind) spent half an hour telling me how Maven will never
*really* work for OSGi, while I sipped my wine, pretended to listen
and quietly thought about all the cool applications I'm going to build
on top of OSGi once we've added this small feature to Maven. ;)

Maybe Maven isn't the ultimate solution, and maybe it's not perfect
for OSGi. But with some tweaks it seems good enough for now.
