I also think that it shouldn't be the default to run tests during 
compilation/build. Tests should be something that a developer does 
after a successful build (of the entire system), as opposed to a core 
part of the build process.

Either that, or a not-build-but-everything-but-tests target should be 
created; I've not managed to find one in Maven so far (at least, one 
that does everything bar test).
