I used 1.3.5 but it's only a prototype so far, should be easy to switch 
to trunk

Yes, that makes sense. I think I fell for the 'boolean 
executeOnEntireRepo' parameter, which sounded to me like it would 
correlate to the 'Process All Artifacts' flag, but as it turns out, it 
doesn't :-)

Exactly what I was looking for and kept missing for some reason. Thanks 
a lot for your help.
