It's a pity we've broken that already tho - esp. with dependency resolution. One of the main
things we all use maven for, and is one thing that is constantly a mystical land of hope.

It would seem that maven these days when using "3.3.9" as a version, if someone else wants
"3.3.0" then the later is whats used, it used to be the highest version requested was used
- this changes at some point and leads to all manner of confusion.

However, remaining on topic - I'd say that for 3.x we'd leave these features off by default,
but for 4.x we turn them on.

I for one can't wait til we fix all the problems with the "compile" scope - and I don't care
if we cause a lot of grief for end users in the process.
