+1.  Some possibilities: 
* We could do a special folder in the main binary distr.
* We could add some special Jars:  e.g. uima-as-service-runtime-one-jar.jar
**  We could make these special Jars available in the Maven repository
system, so they could be "depended" on

I'm willing to work on the POM packaging for this, if someone else can
identify what Jars need to be included for this.

We could also have something like this for UIMA-base - maybe two: one
with and one without the CPM.
