I've become increasingly disenchanted with maven myself. And I fully
agree: the main problem I see with it, is the fact that remote
repositories are inherently brittle and unreliable. Using a private
repository fixed this problem for me (and my team), but as you
mentioned: the plugins suffer from the same problem, albeit not as severely.
