I don't know and I haven't tried it yet. However, Steven has indicated 
that this will probably won't work:

Do we have to increment the version at all? ... since nothing is 
replaced, but only extended.

I cannot provide a good/clean solution for the versioning problem, but I 
personally prefer a solution based on a composite repository. I have the 
feeling that adding new update site, for example for the TextMarker 
release, would be easier and cleaner because we do not have to touch the 
other update sites. We would just add another folder if a new release is 
done (which is also true if we create a separate update site for uima-as)

Without providing any arguments, I also think that switching the build 
process for the update sites to Tycho might be a good idea.

Anyways, that is just my opinion and I will not argue against a solution 
based on only one update site.
