clean up geronimo-openejb geronimo-dependency.xml

                 Key: GERONIMO-2937
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: 2.0-M3
            Reporter: David Jencks
             Fix For: 2.0-beta1

At least the geronimo-openejb geronimo-dependency.xml needs to be drastically cleaned up.

Guidelines for when to put a dependency in geronimo-dependency.xml rather than a config dependency:

- If the jar is something that will ONLY be used by the jar being built or things that MUST
use the jar being built and there is NO CHANCE anyone else will want to use the jar put it
in geronimo-dependency.xml.  Typical examples of this are when you are integrating an external
project such as jetty, tomcat, or openejb.  Generally it is not appropriate to put a library
in geronimo-dependency.xml since someone else might want to use it but not your jar.

- In all other cases but the dependency in a config.    Put it in the config that you think
everyone who wants to use the jar will depend on, not necessarily in the config that depends
on the jar you are building.
