With the roadmap discussion recently, I thought it was going to be an  
incremental move towards 2.0 on trunk - 1.2 will have some parts and  
refactorings, 1.3, 1.4 and so on. I'm not sure why there would need to  
be two streams of development? I think there's a real danger of  
getting lost in the 2.0 trap (c.f. Maven 1.0, Maven 2.0 and Maven 2.1 :)

I'm actually keen to do a couple of small things myself and get a  
release out:
- a few small bug fixes, like the lost change sets for some builds
- better error handling
- switch to a Jetty runtime without the plexus appserver so we can use  
jetty 6
- add a call to svn info --xml to check whether to do an svn update to  
speed up working copy updates

Just stuff I see from running vmbuild and the maven zone.

I think that and a couple of other refactorings that are being  
discussed on here would make a good 1.2 in the next couple of months.
