Maven 2 has a separate library package (libmaven2-core-java), and I'm
going to split the Maven 3 package in two parts (maven +
libmaven3-core-java). The reason is that you may want to depend on Maven
libraries without installing Maven and pulling a JRE. But I guess it
makes more sense for Maven which has many reverse dependencies on the
library unlike Gradle.
