My liking is just one data point.  I was excited to see jexl promoted 
to be with the 'adult projects' :) and went to the commons site, and 
then clicked into jexl.  The whole 'feel' changed.  No judgment offered 
on the maven look but it was the abrupt transition that got me.

I've been rather busy* lately, and haven't been tracking things - was 
there discussion about making the looks of mavenized things to be like 
commons, or commons to be like maven, or have I just tossed a match 
into something I shouldn't have?
