Sure, this is because the derivation of the modules names from existing 
JARs doesn't know anything about these coordinates.

In any case, I was pointing out that you can't have two copies of say 
lib-1.0.jar in the same directory and so anyone unlucky to depend on two 
projects that use the same artifact name might have issues already.
