EHCache library bloat

It came to me as a surprise when i realized my lean and sleek webapp has just been bloated by adding EHCache as a 2-level cache for Hibernate. And not just by a bit. Including ehcache-core in the pom.xml gives you ehcache-terracotta as a derived dependency you'll end up with an 11Mb bigger footprint on the HDD. So adding EHCache to my project inflated the size of my project by 100%. WTH people? Having ehcache-core include ehcache-terracotta is just plain wrong on so many levels.

Update:It seems this has been changed in ehcache-core 2.1.0!
