Since we're on the subject, it might be worth noting the following: I 
tried doing that on our main multimodule project when I first switched 
to 1.1 (b3), since that's how we had it setup under 1.0.3 and it worked 
great.  However, I noticed that when I did that in 1.1, the 
'dependencies' listed for the resulting single consolidated continuum 
project were only those of the parent project itself.  In other words, 
where parent project A has essentially no dependencies, and module A1 
has many dependencies (many of which are also being build in continuum), 
the downside to this seems to be that continuum looses some dependency 
awareness (it doesn't re-build project A when A1's dependencies change). 

Emannuel, does this sound right, or am I missing something?
