Hmmm, well here's my view, the only ones where Maven makes sense are
the JVM based drivers. Most of the JVM based ones can be simplified
down to the JDBC driver... and as Eric is the driver of the JDBC
driver and Eric's opinions on Maven are well known...

Meh, the XML would be an order of magnitude less than the current ANT
build script.

Storage... well it depends which storage you are talking about, it
would be a choice of storage in .svn or storage in ~/.m2

Network bandwidth... only if people follow poor -SNAPSHOT strategies
and are constantly deploying -SNAPSHOTs to the remote repo....
