"Maven" refers to two very different products.  Which version to use
ought to be a serious consideration.

Karl, do you mean to use Maven 1.X or Maven2?  Maven 1.X (which I use)
seems not to be all that well maintained (e.g., Maven 1.1 has been in
beta for 20 months now), and Maven2 is fairly new (first released 16
months ago), so probably has a smaller user base.  The Maven site docs
encourage new adopters to take the Maven2 route.
