Unfortunately it has "junit", the reason being was that Gump 'jar ids' were
within the scope of the project, so the 'ant' was implied. Since Gump only
has 'jar id' that is the only thing that Gump can pass to Maven. Hence we
need to make Gump 'jar ids' globally unique, and (for want of a better)
match Maven 'artifact ids'.

If you have time to explain in more detail I'd appreciate that, I'm not
quite following.

No clue. I agree, not sure why they are there.

I agree. I was saying "correct" because I thought it used "junit", so I feel
it ought ask for it (not have Maven transparently add it).

Agreed, and if they used your gump plug-in to make the Gump descriptor they

Or we build Maven from scratch using Gump'ed artifacts?

I agree, make them match.
