Thanks David!

Just to make sure I understand.  Doing the steps above will allow the 
built artifact to run in either AS 7.0 or 7.1.  Correct?

I thought we had said on IRC that Hibernate could really get away with 
(1) and (2) and that JBoss AS 7.0 could specify to use JBoss Logging 
3.0 via dep-mgmt in its pom(s) rather than allowing Hibernate (or 
others) to pull in Logging 3.1.
