But you know that w/m1 that building the plugin and then using it in  
the same build is also a massive hack.

We maybe able to write a plugin to help facilitate these segments if  
nothing already exists... allowing one command to build, and under  
the covers it runs a set of m2 builds.

I like this sans the openejb bits... though if you want to build  
openejb like this I don't see that it is a problem as long as it is

Not sure what you mean... :-(
