Subject asm4 in xbean
Date Mon, 27 May 2013 07:36:47 GMT

A small discussion which popped up on IRC regarding asm4:

Preclusion: ASM3 and ASM4 are _not_ binary compatible but use the same packages.
For preventing some classpath clashes this xbean-asm-shaded package got created. This was
ASM3 so far.

When moving up to ASM4 we should thus change the package we shade it in, e.g. to org.apache.xbean.asm4.*
I think there is common agreement on this point, right?

I've added a new module of xbean-asm4-shaded which uses ASM4 and shades to the aforementioned
But what to do with the asm3 shade?

We now have two options:
Do we like to 

1.) keep both 

or do we like to 

2.) upgrade whole xbean to ASM4 and remove the old xbean-asm-shaded (and only keep xbean-asm4-shaded)?

2.b) keep the xbean-asm-shaded artifactId but otherwise do like 2.). I perso don't like this
much as it is not so explicit for users.
