I should have been clearer, I suggested two ways of solving the
problem of conflictings jars with OSGi:

a) embed them in bundles as private packages
b) use OSGi version numbers to get the proper wiring

Both are fully supported by OSGi, and by Apache Felix AFAIK.

As for myself, I have not tried b) yet, so I cannot confirm that this
works in practice, or how well.

I have used a) however, and that works fine and is easy to implement.

Just to be clear ;-)
