I don't think its a big deal to move around, but worth getting the ball rolling.
I'd also like to ask about the mail archives stored in there, so I'll contact

Nope - for now, you need it for site.

I can knock this out in an hour using the existing site plugin. It should be

Incidentally, I've released a beta of the SCM plugin that supports subversion,
so if you want to use that to create releases, feel free. 

The release functionality is still fairly primitive, but it saves a bit of work

in project.xml/changes.xml, commits them, tags the tree in the first step, and
the second step does a clean checkout and run a goal to create the release
