      Andy Perlitch I am assigning this to you cause you are the one who first said it. So either you lead it or find a willing lead to get this task to completion.

      The problem with contrib and library modules of malhar is that a ton of dependencies are prescribed as optional. The motive behind it was that the users of these libraries are given an opportunity to keep the size of the dependency-included packages to bare minimum. It comes at a cost that the dependency now has to be manually figured out. This is a complete misuse of the optional dependency, IMO. It defeats the purpose of maven having dependency management as one of the biggest features of it.

      So keep things sane - the proposed compromise is that we start creating smaller discreet packages for discrete technologies.
