The -src artifact is a different case. It should contain anything 
independent of the published modules' artifacts (and it can, because it 
depends on the file patterns in the assembly). It is always a hassle if you 
have no direct possibility to fetch the matching source of the examples (and 
even the JMH stuff) for an individual release. Directing users to GIT is not 
very convenient.
