I think putting broker in the name would give the wrong impression. 
Maybe just qpid-classpath.jar?

I agree that this area needs some more attention. Many of the places 
where incubating occurs should not be hardcoded with version names, e.g. 
there are currently scripts checked in that reference jars from the M2 
release, and other scripts that need to be manually updated for each 
release to reference the new jar names.

The whole area is a bit more of a mess than can be fixed right now, 
which is why I just did a simple string replace to clear out incubating.
