Guava versioning is a perennial source of frustration to users and
maintainers.  Unfortunately jclouds (and specifically me) made poor
choices by using Guava types in public interfaces.  I created some
tooling to address this but did not make much progress fixing jclouds
itself:

Would Guava/Guice vendoring work given the existing mess?  Could you
hack up a partial proof of concept to see if it would work?  Vendoring
has other caveats so let's what others say.
