It's grabs the transitive set of projects and takes the organization  
name out. Adding something like:

handleProject( MavenProject ) { do whatever you like; }

To generalize it would be nice instead of duplicating the logic in  
another plugin.

Ah, hold on there. 1) Since when did accepting new bodies of code be  
decided between two people. For one I disagree it's appropriate to  
even bring them here, and 2) new bodies of code need to go through the  
incubator which is why I suggested Mojo which gives the default search  
behavior (which is a good thing) and generally less cumbersome.
