Sounds like we have a conclusion then:
  * -bin package with all poi jars, their dependencies, and javadocs, for
    offline and non-maven users
  * -src package with sources + tests but no jars (downloaded on demand),
    for anyone wanting to rebuild, going forward no javadocs included
    (built on demand)
  * binary jars in maven central, for maven / ivy users
  * source jars in maven central, to aid debugging
  * new javadocs jars to go to maven central, to aid use

Does that seem a sensible plan to everyone, and does that cover what our 
users are likely to want / expect?

If so, we need a small change to the build script to exclude the full 
javadocs from the source package, and a slightly larger one to 
additionally build the javadocs on a per-module basis + package that as a 
javadocs jar suitable for maven central upload.
