Be careful here.
People get confused with what a module is.

A module is not a dependency.
I think of it as a handy shortcut to allow me to run a maven command
at the top and have the same command also run in any module
Logically a module is a group of things that tend to get released
together. If that is not the case, then don't use a module.
