Well, no.   We need the plugins (well, at least the wsdl2java one) fairly 
early as we use it to generate a LOT of code that the unit tests and system 
tests use all over the place.   The only other option would be to use exec 
plugin or something to call off to the wsdl2java command line stuff which 
would really suck.

Well, there is another option.   There is no reason why the systests for the 
plugins need to be in /systest.  Feel free to create a /maven-plugins/systests 
or something and move them there.   The services (like the sts) pretty much do 
that now.     That way, you can just go into /maven-plugins and run mvn there 
and not run the full build and such.

I guess the question really is "what artifacts do you need from CXF to write 
proper ittests for the plugin?"   Is it just the same things that are needed 
to run the plugins or do you need more?   I'm certainly OK with requiring a 
"mvn -Pfastinstall" prior to running the itests if that would get the 
artifacts that are needed installed.
