Okay... the second part is true. :)  Dependencies are inherited, no
idea what I was thinking there.

and do whatever makes sense.

As with Martin's question about the <repositories> in the parent poms,
I'd rather see some duplication until we're certain these things are
common to all of the modules.  While you can override a dependency
version in a child pom, you can't really get rid of an inherited one
that you don't want.

(The trick of marking things provided keeps them from being
transitive, but it does put them on the classpath for compilation.)
