we don't want to change the type to car, since it isn't a car :-)

We need to update the code that turns maven dependencies into geronimo  
dependencies so it leaves  out any pom dependencies.  The only way a  
pom dependency can mean anything is if it has scope import, and this  
is pretty new maven feature.  I could be wrong but I don't think  
leaving these out will cause any problems.  I think the relevant code  
is in AbstractCarMojo.

thanks for noticing this problem !
