unfortunately, i have a feeling that you are missing some code in 
betwixt to do just that (but i could be wrong, i don't have time right 
now to check...)

i'm already late for the start of a night out so sadly i doubt i'll be 
able to create some code that does what you want tonight. i do think 
that this should be reasonable easy to add so the quickest way to get 
what you want would be to install maven (, 
download the latest code from CVS and start hacking!

if you're feeling generous then please contribute it back (i think that 
this list bounces attachments so you might need to open a bugzilla). 
otherwise, i'll try to find some time but realistically it will be a 
few days...
