I'm suprised that Maven - which normally handles dependency resolution
very well - should rely on components packaging their dependencies for
downstream components. It should be able to resolve the dependencies
from the pom, and then fetch them directly from the repo, rather than
having to unpack an archive.

But this is getting seriously OT for this thread.
