Its excellent.  Ship it.

This is fine by me.  We spin crazy for some short period then the
problem "dissolves".  We can fix for the next release (my loading goes
on to complete after this spike).

assembly:assembly adds in a src jar alongside the bin jar.

You can't do this w/ our bundle.  We can sign the tgz, it'll include
src, but you can't build it in-situ once you undo the tgz.   We could
try make it so you could build in-situ but IIRC, in that avro
discussion was suggested that we might all want to move away from this
style of deliverable?

OK.  I'd say do the svn export for now.  For next time, we'll have mvn
generate a -src bundle to sit beside the -bin bundle it currently
