Definitely got my support. maven.log is an easy no-no, and the reasons for
having .project and .classpath would only really hold if either:

a) project has all its dependencies in a lib/
b) project assumes the user will set a MAVEN_REPO variable in eclipse and
have the values found there.

Neither seems likely to be default for a project, and would constantly see
pain caused by accidental committings.

Do you want me to take it to the Jakarta PMC? Alternatively we could just
float the idea on Jakarta General and Maven Users/Dev and see what
happens. Also, as Eclipse is not just Java, I assume the .project file is
applicable to all projects.
