I would be strongly -1 to having BSF include everything, as it generates 
artifact bloat.

My recommendation:

1. add a BSF-full pom that does include everything. Then people who want 
it, get it, those who don't dont.
2. make the scope of all the various script jars runtime and not compile 
time. So you dont get your classpath contaminated.

I'd like a version of jython-without-regexps up on the repository too, 
but that's another issue.

FYI, the maven-to-RDF conversion we are attempting will eventually index 
every .class in every jar to look for duplicates. If I save a hash of 
every class we can even do version auditing. Oh, people will fear our 
auditor program. Working name: repo-man :)
