Reading again the refered thread seems to me that there where more
questions than answer and no real concerns on the thread. I cannot find a
true real reason to NOT use maven.

As I told before, people mature and things changes over the time. Perhaps
now, that we are closer to real blocks, we can now give a try to maven.
Now, I can add a new +1 to maven: "better jars repo management". I thought
again in that and now I believe maven could help us here too. ;-)

All in all, I guess other people will like to see some simple demo in a
block before going to a vote.

Ralph, please write a maven build file for one of the new moved blocks and
show us the light! ;-)

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo
