i agree that this is a little bit bothersome. 

i wonder whether it's not so much a problem with the worldview as a
lacking feature. i don't know how to specify plugin dependencies for a
maven build (so they could be automatically downloaded). without this
feature, the build is not truly automatic or replicable.
