Excalibur's dependency checking is a cleaned-up, reusable version of
what already exists in many Jakarta projects. It requires no taglibs or
extra downloads. It can't do many things Maven can (eg construct
classpaths), but it can do other things Maven can't, like recursively
build projects. In time, I expect Maven will be able to do all sorts of
neat stuff like this, but for now.. :)
