See you cheated though. You "just happened" to use a project that has a
dedicated groupId. If we used a dedicated groupId for ORM
(`org.hibernate.orm` e.g.) then its not a big deal either way.
Craft the same search for ORM and compare (1) the display and (2) the
complexity needed to build the search.
If you don't like the release/version-specific view Bintray offers then
fine - that's your point of view. I just happen to completely disagree.
One goes straight to the point and for the other, it's not that obvious.
