I stand with Michael about introduction of a hibernate-extra jar-file.
I use the DB2400 and 390 dialect a lot and we have had a hard time getting our mainframe sysadmins to allow Hibernate on their precious mainframe. Physically removing these crucial parts to another jar file labelled as "unmaintained and untested" will not help gain their trust.
Is there no other way to get this messages out there without creating another jar-file? Perhaps a list on the Hibernate website? This will also be more flexible in ways of changing the status of "unmaintained and untested" parts.
Just my two cents as do understand the difficulties you are facing in maintaining these parts.

Sorry for the last message I need to get used to my iPhone :-(
I totally see your point but judging from my experience the WS
customer is an extremely conservative one that wants everything to be
"supported" within the "1st class" Jar file. I know this is hillarious
but that's the way I saw some WS customers act.
I know about one of my customers that will really discuss this.
