Yes.  maven wants it in project.xml.  However, in our environment we 
actually have the dependencies in individual files such as 
commons-logging.xml. We then added 

in .mavenrc which then allows us to put


into our project.xml.  I don't see why block.xml and maven's project.xml 
couldn't share the same definition.

I just don't understand why we need a block-builder.  Maven already will 
do all this if you want it to. In addition, it will create IntelliJ 
projects and run checkstyle reports, code coverage reports and a whole 
other slew of plugins.
