Everything. It uses an enhanced Gump descriptor (and works with gump), 
where you define your src, test and docs dirs, has easy buildfile import 
capability, automatic plugin download and installation, ...

Just try it, it's way better. Also Maven has changed a lot since you 
have tried it in comparison with Centipede.

Hence I would propose here, as I did on the James list, to wait for the 
release of both products and decide. It's only fair for both projects.
