Do you have some pressing need for this (size, licensing, etc.)? If not,
by far the easiest solution is just to leave the dependencies intact, as
otherwise you'll need to keep reviewing your custom deployment whenever
you do an upgrade as the dependency graph may have changed.

In the end it's just a few megabytes of extra bits which should nowadays
only be a problem if you're targeting a mobile or other embedded
environment. If you do and there's wider demand for something like this, 
we might want to consider including such a jackrabbit-lite package in 
our normal releases.

The POI libraries are used for full text indexing of various Microsoft 
file formats, most notably MS Office.
