POM-only projects ignored.  Causes problems with parent/child module pattern
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: CONTINUUM-330
         URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/CONTINUUM-330
     Project: Continuum
        Type: Bug
    Versions: 1.0-alpha-4    
 Reporter: A.J. Whitney


POM-only projects are ignored.  This poses problems for projects which depend on the POM-only
project.

A common pattern is to have a POM-only parent with modules.  This pattern is broken for two
reasons:

1) The POM-only project is never added to Continuum so there is no way for the parent project
to exist in the repository if Continuum is the only build mechanism (which seems likely for
a production environment based on Continuum)

2) Each child module is added to Continuum separately and the parent/child module directory
structure is not maintained.  This is a problem as child modules cannot depend on the parent
POM via directory structure (either the default ../pom.xml or via another path specified via
the <relativePath> element).

As this parent/child module pattern is extremely common for all but trivial projects, this
seems like an issue with a broad impact.
