Johan asked me to move the empty jar discussion to the mailing list.

As I mentioned at GitHub, we did some tests with the published SNAPSHOT's

because of the "auto-generated" module name in case of the empty jars.

the empty jar.

I never tried it and I know that it doesn't fit to the familar handling of
platform dependent jars...

Have you thought about it to use the platform variable at the artifactId?
