I know there's no descriptor for nsuml, but I thought it better to get 
graph in and work on the next thing, rather than do it all at once.
I've been running gump on my laptop as well, but you'll notice from posts 
that it's been a little problematic.

And hence we don't distribute it with either graph or maven. It is 
available for download from ibiblio, as the other maven jars are.

Now I can actually change things and get them working, it's a lot easier.

But it kinda makes me wonder why we are trying to get a gump descriptor 
generated for maven projects that runs ant, rather than gump bootstrapping 

maven and adding a 'maven' tag to the project definition.
