Ah, so there *is* javadoc buried in there.  Thanks for pointing it out. 
  I agree that it would be nice if we could make this more visible and 
perhaps aggregated at a higher level than the module level.

I was looking at the maven site plugin docs like this one:

While the second link only references generating the site for a single 
project I guess it really doesn't preclude multi module builds directly 
... and stating that the links between modules will not work in a multi 
module build.

I was thinking that this may explain some of the problems with 
generating the site for samples ... it may just be that I have some more 
configuration to do.
