Sorry, I've lost sight of this, but I'd like to follow-up.|

The extensionbundle is created, but unless it's listed in the
config.ini, it won't be installed. My naive idea was that if the
packages I need are specified in the packages.extra property, the
extension bundle would not be needed anymore.
The problem with the extensionbundle is that it is not added to the
config.ini/bundles.info by build tools (because they don't know about
this thing) and it has to be added manually later.

I've enabled the equinox console, and indeed the system bundle exports
the extra packages. I found that I have to add explicit version numbers
to the packages.extra property to satisfy my application bundle's
imports, now it's starting. However, the servletbridge bundle doesn't
start whithout the extensionbundle because of:
osgi> start 6
gogo: BundleException: Could not resolve module:
Unresolved requirement: osgi.wiring.package;
So I guess my question comes down to: why is the extensionbundle needed
at all, and is there a way to do without?
