why is this a problem? I don't mind having maven installed and setup if i
can run 'ant test-maven' and do verifications on these things.
even if that involves simply forking a 'mvn' process externally.

sounds great, i thought this was the idea here:

I mean, even during normal development, if there was an easy single command
i could run to verify i'm not breaking maven support, this would help,
especially when refactoring / moving things around / etc.
I wouldn't mind running this at all, to try to keep maven functional. I also
wouldn't mind debugging or even trying to figure out bits of maven until i
make it pass.

my problem is just that without any automated verification like this: maven
is just a big scary piece of code with no tests, and I cannot touch it!
