If we're talking restructuring the local repo, I've long wanting to separate out locally "mvn
install"'d items from those downloaded, essentially this would keep ( for the most part )
local SNAPSHOTs separate from anything downloaded.

I guess what I really want there is a local releases/snaphshots repo separation, often it's
handy to just blow away all snapshots and rebuild into a known state.  It does make for more
complexity tho.
