One question playing on my mind is that in AS 7 we're effectively locking users into a
specific version of Arquillian and friends. From talks with Aslak, my understanding is
that this is kind of different from what is done when running in other containers, where
these dependencies are brought in by bundling the arquillian dependencies in the test
deployments. What we have at the moment is probably faster since there is less stuff that
needs doing to the deployments, but locking against the version might not be ideal.
Maybe as David originally suggests, a separate modules root for all the arquillian stuff
would be a good idea. That way we could create modules for different
Arquillian/Shrinkwrap/JSFUnit/whatever-else versions combinations.

The AS 7 profile notion is all about configuration and what modules get
used in the runtime. There's no different set of jars associated with
Modules all declare their dependencies, so given a particular profile it
should be possible to analyze the set of necessary modules and create a
distribution limited to that set. We shouldn't use the term "profile"
for that though.
