That's why there is an "Also" in my 2nd paragraph.  I agreed with Vinod 
and added to it to describe other problems.

It's not a matter of scope.  It's a matter of having additional stuff in 
the jar that you don't want.  Besides the bloat it could create 
dependency issues.

Basically we've spent time and effort ironing out the way this multi 
project is setup.  It just works.  I don't see a reason to change it. 
I'm going to have to veto this change at this point.  I'm not convinced 
you have a good reason to do it and there are disadvantages.
