I do not believe so.  The use of the dependency + antrun plugins are  
relatively limited.

Both solutions are hacks IMO... and IMO the lesser of the two is to  
use the released version of the assembly plugin + dependency and antrun.

We are also not certain that the patches to the assembly plugin will  
be committed... and if they will be we are not sure when.  I'd be  
happy to change this up once the new assembly plugin with support can  
do this for us.  Short of that I believe the solution applied to the  
geronimo-jetty-j2ee assembly is the most optimal given the situation.

There are no other problems that I am aware of.

I believe that was Prasad, not I who commented on this... but we will  
take a look.  Thanks :-)
