dunno that, the eclipse plugin is more actively developed i guess at the
moment. It generates a separate project per pom and links them together
via eclipse project dependencies.

an archetype is a template directory structure yes. Each file in that
structure is potentially a template in the sense that it could contain
placeholder variables that are replaced upon archetype creation.
Now it is exactly this template substitution mechanism that is causing
probs at the moment :
a) it searches binary files as well, often resulting in NPEs [1]
b) it mangles special characters eg the copyright character we have in
each license header [2]

I've created issues for both problems, unless i find some time to look
at the actual code we will have to wait for them to fix this. The
easiest thing to do would be to just disable template substition
completely - maybe you can nag Jason or Brett about it when you see them ;)

Another problem, which is supposedly fixed in the latests snapshots, is
that you can't load archetypes from a server other than the central
repository [3].
