Ok, I can rename it again. :) How about maven-eclipsepde-plugin?

The pde-maven-plugin basically wraps the Eclipse-PDE-Builder.  So  
using it would be essentially unmavenizing it, and would require ant  
scripts to configure the eclipse pde builder, and then eclipse itself  
would be building the plugins and features, not maven.  Using it  
would be a regression in my mind and a huge step back from even what  
Maven currently has and is working to provide.
