Thanks. I'm still in favour of putting the correct one from the dist back.

If anyone has problems using the original 1.0 where it used to work, I
suggest a 1.0.1 release can then be worked on. I don't expect to see
much of this problem as from what I could tell the changes were not a
highly used part of the API.

I'm around quite a bit, except that I've got a couple of things to do
tonight and tomorrow morning. Other than that, 9am till midnight
Australian Eastern is fine by me. I hang out on ASF channels at
freenode, but am not aware of a Jakarta one. #maven at
would be fine too, and has the advantage of being available behind
firewalls at Torsten and I had a (text) chat
on Skype the other day too. Whatever suits everyone best...
