I'm obviously +1 on this.  One version provides much needed  
simplification for the build process.  IMO maven's existing model of  
versioning each module separately is a dangerous build anti-pattern  
and we should not follow it.

Ya, thats probably what I would recommend... though really, if we can  
agree to use one version then we could just a 2.0 now and update G  
1.2 and 2.0 to just use those versions.
