I think this is a good idea, helps get additional testing of those  
commands that folks will be using.

I would suggest that we hide the details of invoking these into a set  
of mojo's... I know we can use antrun but that exposes all of the  
bits needed in each pom which is unneeded bloat and will be more  
difficult to manage.

Along those lines, we don't really need any Ant-bits to do this.   
plexus-util has enough support for use to invoke external commands  
and handle stream interactions so we can then parse the output for  
validation.  I don't think we need to use Ant here.  But, I also  
think that Ant provides an awesome set of components for builds, so  
if we do need them, then it is easy enough to programatically invoke  
the tasks from inside of a mojo... I've done this many times before.
