having to resolve the snapshot dependencies are precisely the reason I
didn't want to mess with the maven release plugin for this.  I would
have to release a new plexus-security and probably a couple of other
little higgly piggly bits.  I think we can get by with the timestamped
SNAPSHOT dependencies for these things, means we can release alpha's
more frequently as well since we don't have to deal with
micro-releasing the dependencies each time.

it can, it is just done partially in a couple of places and I thought
it might be nice to have that all collated together, but can
be pushed a bit

fine by me :)

I want to see this pushed this week and then every couple of weeks
from here on out.
