I don't understand the issues with using the maven repo as a plugin  
repo.  sorry, I haven't been following the discussion that closely.   
I was under the impression that a plugin repo had to include a bunch  
of non-maven-recognized files in order to be useful.  If we are to do  
this I think we need a clear and definitive opinion from the m2 folks  
that this will not get in the way of repository maintenance.

My opinion at the moment, based on very little info:
-- if the maven guys assure us that using a maven repo as a plugin  
repo will never cause problems, lets do that.
-- if there is a measurable chance it would cause problems now or in  
the future, lets have a separate plugin repo.
