This is doable. The Tomcat project already does this. See [1]. You want
to follow the deploy-release target. With the added bonus that this
script does not require passwords to be stored locally anywhere, whether
'encrypted' or not.

There are a couple of manual steps (see the README in the same
directory) required to get to a release but the fundamental requirement
(you have some JARs stored somewhere (locally, p.a.o, wherever)  that
you want in Maven central) is met by this process.

HTH,
