Comment #26 on issue 298 by protobuf jar's manifest should include OSGi metadata

If you have a lite and full jar, from an OSGi perspective, it is better *not* to distinguish the package exports i.e. for the packages that overlap, the package export spec should be exactly the same. The only difference will be that the full jar will export extra packages.

That way users can decide (based on which packages they need to import) which jar they need to use.

This approach also lends towards good code structure -- "full jar" functionality will be isolated at the package level.
