[hibernate-dev] Hibernate4 artifact names, Persistence provider name, maven...

If someone wanted to include both Hibernate 3 + Hibernate 4 in the same 
project, that might be easier if the Hibernate 4 artifacts had a version 
number in it or was changed for every new major release.  I don't think 
Maven supports building two versions of the same artifact (at the same 
dependency level).

For the persistence provider name,
org.hibernate.ejb.HibernatePersistence, I'm wondering if we could have a
org.hibernate.ejb.HibernatePersistence4 in addition, that could be used 
to uniquely reference Hibernate 4.x persistence providers.

I assume this is too late in the Hibernate 4 cycle to change, but wanted 
to bring the idea up.

Changing the artifact names would impact other projects that depends on 
Hibernate4 and would need to sync up with the changes as well.

What do you think?
