Hmm..looking at the maven site, the documentation is not very helpful.  The main page just
says that it "retrieves jars of resources", then "processes" them. The FAQ page gives a few
further vague hints.

It's the bit about NOTICE file generation that I care about.

I know that the remote-resources plugin is capable of pulling in a copy of the LICENSE file
from a central location. I don't personally think this is a good idea, and that checking in
a copy manually to each project is better, but care less about this than the NOTICE file.

Is there something else that the remote-resources plugin would do for commons projects *other*
than handle NOTICE and LICENSE? If so, I'm not aware of it..

Please don't take this as an attack on either Dennis or yourself. You're both great contributors
to commons. I just don't see the point of this particular plugin...
