My initial impression at recreating the current release artifacts
using m2 (whether we should stick to the current style of release
artifacts TBD, but current packaging has worked for us so far) has
been that each taglib will have a multi-module build, one that has a
jar packaging (for taglibs-foo.jar) and two that will have war
packaging (foo-examples.war and foo-doc.war). Probably need some
antrun execution for the TLDs, possibly for parts of the doc jar
(especially for RDC, which uses tag files and custom stylesheets to
generate TLD reference docs).

The above plan will require quite a reshuffle in the svn layout (hence
I opted for a branch).

Yup, see antrun bit above. About different specifications, it may be
possible to do that using m2 profiles.

Producing wars isn't hard (once you have all the contents). There is
atleast one taglib plugin [1], though I haven't used it.
