Nope, I think it's pretty clear that there's consensus to look into a plugin.

Maven-1 makes sense, the work on a plugin is more about figuring out
what to put in there and not the technical difficulty of creating the
plugin. Unless it turns out that Maven-2 support makes it a lot
easier, or that's just the itch someone wants to scratch.

We should be able to script it, as you suggest below. Given that
maven-2 can live side by side with maven-1, it just needs someone to
either go ahead and make a pom.xml for all of commons, or to make a
list of the changes needed.

+1 for commons/proper/trunk/commons-plugin

Dunno :) Definitely on my list of todo's. (well, it was going to be a
perl script or regexp list, but xslt makes sense).
