Thanks Maarten. Somehow, I managed to look at conf and dependencies and
overlooked dependency :-(
Perhaps adding links from conf element and defaultconf/defaultconfmapping
attributes would help?

The JIRA issue is about dependency conf being sensitive to whitespace
around separators.
Previously, I tried to implement the same method for splitting on comma in
StringUtils,
but I overlooked splitting on semicolon which happens in two separate
classes AFAICS:
AbstractModuleDescriptorParser and XMLModuleDescriptorUpdater.
