we're note even using the antlibs, they were not really working out. It 
was easier to just exec the mvn script directly. If Maven has the 
command line option to do what we want, then we can do it.
So if you show me the "$MAVEN_HOME/bin/mvn" command to publish a single 
JAR(with a POM) and being able to make sure the signature goes with it, 
then we are fine.
GPG signing is a no brainer, we can do that any day.
