I would be genuinely surprised if that were to happen.

I think there is a greater chance of seeing C* itself being built with
maven than the drivers...


I will wait to be asked for my opinion on how this could be addresses
using Maven as a build tool. The stated preference of the C*
developers is to use ANT. I am happy that Maven ANT Tasks is being
used over IVY, and happy that the artifacts are being pushed to
central, after that it doesn't matter what the build tool used is, as
long as the published poms are good (and last time I fine tuned them
they were) and as long as stuff gets into central, I am fine.
