I know 8-)

The main problem is the mismatch of ids.  Gump's id space is flat and
Maven has the tuple of groupId and artifactId.  In many cases we can use
the artifactId but it is not always possible as things tend to clash
from time to time (junit-addons is one such example).  I don't see an
automated way to resolve this.

Another problem is writing a POM parser for Gump that recursively chased
down parent POMs and knew how to consider the dependencies of plugins
(almost all mvn projects depend on Velocity via the site plugin).

Me neither, sorry.
