Problem I hit is that I want two sites. A user site and a developer
site. I'm a firm believer that the current Maven site is painful
because it tries to support two types of consumer at the same time.

The user site is deployed every time a release is made and is mostly
informational and link-based. It does not contain reports (except for
Javadoc, but Javadoc should be a deliverable and not a report) (and
xref, which again is not a report but a view on a deliverable). This
comes from maven xdocs/, but much of the stuff is turned off.

The developer site is generated on every Continuum build and contains
many reports. It also contains deliverables (jar, javadoc etc).

Another childish 'I WANT' is two types of build each time. It should
build against the specified versions, and then build against a scm
checkout of the dependencies (as with gump) where possible.

Thought I'd bring it up :)
