:-)

For me, its some combination of personal preference (especially for
Commons-like builds, most of which are single module), the Commons m2
build not working for me last time I tried (IIRC deployment protocol
wasn't pluggable -- that was a while ago!) and the fact that I haven't
even installed m2 yet on 2 out of 3 machines (though I intend to :-).

The Commons m2 builds have improved greatly since I tried, thanks to
all the hard work others have put in and they do more than the m1
builds ATM (the felix plugin jumps to mind). There are few m2 quirks
(ongoing license header discussion), but there are also workarounds.
I'll be trying out the m2 builds again (hopefully soon).
