I think 'build clean' should delete everything, just like it did before. 
We should then rename the current 'clean' target to 'clean-jars' or 
something like that. In accordance to the Principle of Least 
Astonishment, "clean" should really mean "clean it all" (or is it just 
me who's astonished?) ;-).

Just my 0.02 €.


P.S.: On this 700MHz PIII, a trimmed build takes 1m27s. I'm
really excited with the new build system and coupled with the Flow, 
these advancements really make me think (not that I ever doubted it) 
that Cocoon is THE way to go!
