The Maven build is there to enable using Maven to check the correctness of the POMs.  I think
this is essential.  Prior to this, the Lucene/Solr Maven POMs were *always* out of date, and
nobody knew about it.

That's how it's done now.  The "maven artifacts" are just the Ant-produced .jar files, along
with the Maven POM files.  Copying to the maven servers is performed using Maven Ant Tasks,
which runs under Ant, not Maven.

I don't know IVY - maybe it could serve the same copy-to-maven-servers purpose as Maven Ant

And again, the parallel maven build is not involved in preparation of maven artifacts or in
pushing them to Maven Central.
