This is a backwards-compatible maintainance release of all maintained

This is the first set of new excalibur releases since August 29, 2005.

The binary version of the distribution takes the form of a 
maven2-structured jar repository.
The main change has been a complete repackaging to work well with 
maven2-structured builds.

All version numbers of all components have been bumped significantly to 
reflect the new
