ok, that idea is actually in my old thread on this topic..

my intention was always to be able to come up with defaults for m2
projects, via some helper class that could be configured probably in
the application.xml for the time being...basically that for m1 and m2
projects would pull whatever from the respective project files and
offer defaults for these during project addition, etc.

regarding configuration of those kinda things...I was actually really
impressed by the pebble way of configuring those things and thought
that might be a neat model for continuum or maven apps in general

I hadn't actually thought about taking it a notch deeper like that,
but that is a good idea...we should kick that around.

There is a ton to do with continuum right now, my thinking was that of
all of them this was a good as place to start as any and should give
rahul and I some more changes to work together.

anyway, since today has been largely shot with other things I'll
probably start in on this tonight/tomorrow.  need to track down rahul
now :)
