at which point we will have a majority vote I guess; I will -1 actually
moving to maven as long as it is in beta. I am +1 on testing maven for

it is okay to have an optional 'alpha build system' that uses maven; it
seems stupid to disregard possible improvements at this point. I'd ask
you to reconsider.

is possible, etc etc.

Perhaps doing a branch is a good idea here?
