I would appreciate some well defined use-cases/scenarios for this?

>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Surefire
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: classloading, Maven Surefire Plugin
>    Affects Versions: 2.5
>            Reporter: Paul Gier

>             Fix For: 2.6
> I believe the surefire plugin would be improved if it generated it's own classpath instead
of getting the test classpath from MavenProject.  This would allow the user better control
over what is included in the classpath, and would actually simplify parts of the code for
building the classpath.
> The risk associated with this change is that the default surefire classpath could end
up being different than the test classpath in MavenProject.  However, I think that as long
as the surefire plugin classpath generation is well documented, this won't cause a problem
for users.
