Maven 3.0 (alpha-6) actually works surprisingly well on the Axis2
build. There are only two issues:

- A duplicate dependency declaration in the integration module; this
is now fixed.

- The root POM has an antrun execution that depends on the output of
several of its sub-modules by directly accessing
modules/xxx/target/classes, but no provisions are made to make sure
that these modules are built before the antrun execution. Depending on
the output of other modules in that way is bad practice, and leads to
unstable/unpredictable build. With Maven 2.0 the build order is such
that it works correctly, but this is probably more a coincidence. We
will probably have to use some maven-assembly-plugin magic to do this
correctly and to make the build order predictable.
