It looks like all the issues relate to jars which are not part of JMeter
itself (they are dependencies that are bundled with the binary release).

So I'm afraid that there's not a lot we can do in the JMeter project apart
from not using the dependencies - however that is not an option.

xstream -
soap - Apache SOAP - no longer maintained
