This hack will get your build done for you, but it is a hack, and you should never forget
that it is a hack. Or to put another way:
> it's technical debt. When the debt must be paid is unclear, but e.g. if the maven-shade-plugin
produces a different binary result depending on which version you use, then you may run into
apparently bizarre problems with users who built using Maven 3.1.1 rather than an older version,
or vice versa, and it may take you some time to diagnose *why* it's happening

so on.

a version of maven-shade-plugin that works for you. You

will (IIRC) just fail fast if the version is too old. That is a lot less mysterious than some
subtle inconsistency in shaded artifact build results. And you'll get truly repeatable builds
which are one of the fabulous benefits of a well-structured build system.
