I'd like to propose distributing two artifacts in addition to the binary and source releases we already are voting on.

The two artifacts are the "complete with dependencies" jar and the "everything openjpa" jar. This way, folks who use maven (either 1 or 2) can take advantage of the dependency downloads that maven is famous for.

Simply, if a user has a maven project they can add openjpa as a dependency and they are done.
