Actually it is not of much interest how the jar was named, because it was 
not used as attached artifact anyway and could therefore not be addressed as 
dependency on its own. The important point was always that it's in the WEB-
INF/lib and the WEB-INF/classes folder is empty. Backward compatibility is 
not tied to the jars name.
