> It would be handy to have profile activation based on a dependency being present. For
example, I would like to be able to have a profile in my corporate super-pom which gets activated
when any of the projects at my corporation (which use a parent of the super-pom) include log4j
as a dependency. The profile would automatically add a dependency on our custom Log4j appenders.
> There are other uses as well, like  if log4j is detected to be in the dependency list,
then unpack a maven-remote-resources-plugin bundle with a log4j.xml.vm which gets velocity-processed
for a default corporate-wide configuration. This would best be chained with negative-file
exist profile activation for an existing log4j.xml.
