I'm just chucking out ideas.

It may not be the deploy plugin if it became a core version component,  
but what do you mean by the standard mechanism? In <build/> and  
<distributionManagement/> or do you mean the auto version selection?

Our achievements speak for themselves. What we have to keep track
of are our failures, discouragements and doubts. We tend to forget
the past difficulties, the many false starts, and the painful
groping. We see our past achievements as the end result of a
clean forward thrust, and our present difficulties as
signs of decline and decay.
