There's one non-standard file (geronimo-plugins.xml), but it has to go
in the root directory of the repo and be maintained (updated every
time a plugin in the repo is added, removed, or updated).  I have
heard the Maven guys say they could handle that, but I'm not sure if
they meant "someone could implement something" or "it would work right
now" -- I kind of suspect the former.
