Upstream do not release source tarballs - access is by svn. It looks to
me as though all of the Jars are released in sync (although I may be a
bit confused, since the ibiblio repos has version 1.0-alpha-4, and the
maven download contains 1.0-beta-2, and some things have been renamed).
I guess if we produce one source package then we should package _all_ of
wagon, not just the bits needed by maven. It don't think this will be a
problem, as it doesn't look like it will pull in any additional
