Resolution of version ranges with non-snapshot bounds can resolve to a snapshot version

      Description

      Contrary to the 2.0 design docs:

      "Resolution of dependency ranges should not resolve to a snapshot (development version) unless it is included as an explicit boundary."
      – from http://docs.codehaus.org/display/MAVEN/Dependency+Mediation+and+Conflict+Resolution#DependencyMediationandConflictResolution-Incorporating%7B%7BSNAPSHOT%7D%7Dversionsintothespecification

      The following is equates to true:

      VersionRange.createFromVersionSpec( "[1.0,1.1]" ).containsVersion( new DefaultArtifactVersion( "1.1-SNAPSHOT" ) )

      The attached patch only allows snapshot versions to be contained in a range if they are equal to one of the boundaries. Note that this is a strict equality, so [1.0,1.2-SNAPSHOT] will not contain 1.1-SNAPSHOT.
