My first question is: why would people want to avoid maven as a build 
system if they get from us everything on the plate?: standard structure, 
archetypes. You do not have to know maven at all and be able to run 
cocoon app in under 10 minutes.

Once cocoon libs (especially plugins and archetypes) are uploaded on 
public maven repo where is no easier way to start.

Custom build will always get outdated some time which will bring confusion.
