The proxy also has an option to use mock Accumulo.  It seems to follow from
this that MiniAccumulo would be an option also.

anyway. I never understood why the proxy should have the option to

Making these changes in 1.6 would be annoying for users (moving MiniAcc to
another package and deprecating options in the Proxy).  On the other hand
1.5. will not be perfect and it needs to be released.  Simplifying
the dependency tree may avoid problems in the future.  Do you know of any
issues this dependency structure will cause for 1.5.0?
