I don't know how much maven 2 differs from maven 1, but I am sure that 
switching to maven 1 would have required breaking the current build, 
primarily because things have to be moved around. Blocks need to be 
split up so that the samples can be built separately from the block 
itself.  I'm also pretty sure that the output of the samples will need 
to be more than a simple jar as we will most likely need to write our 
own plugin to take all the samples and merge them together to create a 
single working webapp.

I think it is more a lack of time than energy.  I've been very 
frustrated for months at how little time I have to spend on Cocoon.
