That'd be nice.  Some jar that contains all the openjpa-*.jar files  
is perfect for my needs.  The good news is that the maven-assembly- 
plugin allows you to define several assembly xml files and build  
multiple archives containing whatever you like.  So if people want,  
we could have:

openjpa-0.9.0-full.jar   // contains all openjpa code, openjpa-*.jars  
openjpa-0.9.0-nodep.jar  // contains all openjpa code and all third  
party dependency jars

There's a naming convention for this kind of thing, hope I've got it
