One thing that bothers me in this system is the steps of site-upload, 
doing tar, scp, untar on the server...

The big drawback is that this never cares about removing the previous 
versions... and that means that some pages may stay there unattended 
and some people might have or distribute URLs to it...
I do all my uploads with rsync over ssh (which is also more economic in 
disk-space and bandwidth).  Using the --delete option is exactly what 
you want: it deletes the files that are not in the source. Something 
which you only do when you trust your upload, of course.

This completely replaces site-upload (and we should have a maven plugin 
or ant task for rsync).
