That seems like it should work.  It's a pain for us as framework developers,
but I'd *really* like to avoid the need tor downstream developers of apps
based on Shale to have to be pedantic about dependencies.  Ideally, they
could rely on shale-apps-parent (for whatever version of Shale they happen
to use) to pull all the right stuff in.
