>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 3.2.1

> The maven shade plugin already does a great job in minimizing JAR size. For the majority
of applications this is exactly what is needed.
> On the other hand there are some application areas where the algorithm is too agressive.
One particular and rather frequently found case is the services API: ServiceLoader will ceise
to work for minimized JARs since it is the prototype of the biggest "minimize-JAR-antipattern":
String-to-class conversion.
> To make <minimizeJar> usable in such scenarios, there should be a set of options
to enable the usual suspetcs (like ServiceLoader) to be detected.
