Don't know would that be easier for ya.  Look if you're going to wrestle
with things go ahead and chop it away - do what you think is best.  We
understand some things may break in the process and they can be
addressed so if you want to scrap my crap go ahead and restructure as
you please.  Trust me this may not be the best way to go.

Probably not - I want to get rid of this subprojects layer.  Let's go
ahead and restructure.

Yeah I see where you're going its a damn nightmare.  Tell me what you
want to do?

Yes.  We want the maven functionality out of the box to keep things

Don't know have never used the multiproject:site goal.  I was intending
to get involved.  Right now I'm doing the eve consolidation.  I will
cleanup the docs with you but tell me where you want to go with site
document generation?  Let's cordinate but you take the reigns on this
one - let me know how you want me to grok it.
