Are there really that many people using contrib and scratchpad from 2.5.1
though? Almost everyone who uses contrib and scratchpad will have upgraded
to newer version of poi (eg the alphas, which only had the one artificat),
so that they can get the new scratchpad functionality.
My feeling is that people will either be using 2.5.1 core (but not
contrib+scratchpad), so nothing will change for them with 3.0, or they'll
already be using the single artificat 3.0 alphas.
Hopefully I've guessed right, and we won't cause problems for many people
