Previously, I had asked that the maven descriptor in the avalon CVS not 
be in the main dir, not to confuse our users.

But as I now understand from this mail, it's also possible that we just 
don't include it in the releases.

I'm against using any non-released buildtool in releases.

But given that there is much discussion on things that developers don't 
even know what is about, I think it's in the best interest of all Avalon 
that build tools alternative to Ant are included in the correct places 
in our projects so that all developers can evaluate them and decide on 
merit rather than feeling.

This of course also means that we accept the POMs from Jason, and can 
commit any other build system too for comparative evaluation.

What do you guys think, is this reasonable?
