Moving XSLT Runner and Ant Task to Maven is not hard.  I have it
working on my machine.  Once I've cleaned it up I'll check it in.  At
that point we'll be all Maven.

Is there something we should be doing to better deal with the
cross-module dependencies?  For example, Simple, Validator and
XSLT-Runner have hard-coded dependencies on ODFDOM 0.8.7.  But
shouldn't we really be building and testing against the latest
version, e.g., the trunk?

Or do we want to stage that more deliberately, e.g., after we agree to
branch for a release?
