When using 'mvn clean install -Dfastbuild -Pstudio-full', the 'studio-full' profile is activated.

Actually there's no benefit of using both profile id or the property, it's just that you have
the choice of using one of them.
I tried to use the 'activeByDefault' activation property but it can't work properly with our
other profiles.
When setting this property on a profile, all other active by default profiles are deactivated.

Quoting the Maven documentation at [1]:
> All profiles that are active by default are automatically deactivated when a profile
in the pom is activated on the command line or through its activation config.

So I used the property based activation to solve this.

However, I found a more clever solution and we could use the activation based on presence
of the 'pom.xml' file.

Using the following diff on Studio's trunk, by default, 'mvn clean install' would build everything,
and 'mvn clean install -P-studio-full' (notice the '-' in front of studio-full) would only
build the core code plugins:
