Its clear that many here like maven enough to want to keep it. 
Personally, it drives me up the wall.

For example, ATM, I am trying to use clirr with maven. I've had it 
working before, but now it deosn't. It tries to download the jar even 
though its in the local repository, and thus fails. There is no rhyme 
nor reason about why it fails now when I've had it work previously. I've 
already wasted an hour on it, so now I shall just do what I always do - 
run ant instead.

At least there seems to be some discussion about trying to simplify life 
here at commons.
