Maintaining our own repos would also allow us to solve the SNAPSHOT 
dependency problem we currently have.  We could have a procedure, that 
before a release (say the M4 release), we copy the geronimo repo to 
and update the build so that it builds against the M4 repo.  And we 
just never touch the SNAPSHOTs again so that the source distribution of 
M4 can always build against the M4 repo.
