 We have a situation where we have to commit our .settings directory due to the presence of
some items that are not generated by the plugin, and the clean plugin simply deletes that
whole directory.  I'm envisioning something like the maven-clean-plugin, which lets us control
exactly what we want to clean.
> I realize that the plugin can generate custom configuration via the <additionalConfig>
tag, which would allow us to regenerate the cleaned file, but if the additional config files
are large, the XML in pom.xml can get unwieldy very fast.  It would be easier to just commit
the file and tell the plugin to not clean it.
