Not sure either, possibly to control the addedToClasspath flag of the

These are the artifacts attached by Apache plugins I know of:
- maven-ejb-plugin: EJB client JAR as type "ejb-client"
- maven-jar-plugin: test JAR as type "test-jar"
- maven-javadoc-plugin: javadoc JAR as type "javadoc"
- maven-source-plugin: main/test source JAR as type "java-source"

All of these end up as files with extension ".jar" and a classifier. 
Hence if users declare <dependencies> on them using the <classifier> 
only they would be handled by the patch just as already outlined for the 
test-jar case.
