IzPack has an ant task to generate the installer, and they report on
their site [1] that it has been "fixed for calling the IzPack ANT task
from Maven", so it should be possible to incorporate it in a profile of
a dist, so that calling that profile would generate also the monolithic
installer.

As soon as someone else gives it's +1, I'll work on it on Sunday.
