Thanks Dan. Looks like there's a bug in assembly 2.1 that keeps this  
from working [1]. It appears fixed with assembly 2.2-SNAPSHOT, but  
using that version causes warnings elsewhere, which I think I can  
fix. The result does produce a working copy under distribution/target/ 
SNAPSHOT, and if you set QPID_HOME to that and add $QPID_HOME/bin to  
your PATH, then qpid-server works fine.

Gordon, Robert, everyone: shall we go with this approach then?
