The workflow for publishing third-party bugfix Maven artifacts:

1. Either change the source package names, or not.

2. Patch and build.

3. Publish to Sonatype's OSS repo using a different groupId.

How exactly does this "hold us back"?

AFAICT, the *only* difference Maven brings is wide use of its repository.  (That is, there
is a greater likelihood that other people will notice what we have done and possibly take
exception to it.)
