That was just en example, I still advocate avoiding versioned package
names for the current upstream releases if possible. The relocations
could also be used to transition from libfoo<n>-java back to
libfoo-java, as just happened with groovy, cglib and asm.

Yes it only works if the versions are compatible of course.

I hope so! It should also lead to lighter maven.rules files.
