Pretty much. It would probibly be wise to instert a "backup step" before 
deploying just for easy recovery if anything goes wrong. while this 
could be automated, it may be wiser for the person to physically backup 
the /www/ directory by hand into a temporary 
tar file, so they know they are properly backed up before going forward. 
Its important to note that all the project sites are subdirectories of 
/www/, I sometimes wish this were not the case 
and that the toplevel could be updated without any risk to the contents 
of those subdirectories, which would be the case if they existed within 
separate dorectories from the top level site.

I'd rather stick to the defaults as much as possible instead of 
customizing the goal name being called, there is still room to customize 
in maven.xml via overloading, pre-goal and post-goal tags.

No, there is a separate sandbox-build projects for the sandbox at this time.

Just for clarification, this only rebuilds the top level site, its upto 
each project to keep their site uptodate by running 'maven site' in 
thier project directory.
