Shortly after LUCENE-2493 was created, I looked into the possibility of having Maven treat
*-dev.jar files as snapshots.  As far as I could tell, this is not a configurable item: snapshots
are named *-SNAPSHOT.jar - it's hard-coded in lots of places in the Maven code.  I like Maven,
but inflexibility like this makes it hard to get pre-existing projects to play nice with it...
