During development, there is the occasional situation where your latest change to a component
may hose the installation if you are building and installing into m2 or the repository m2

I think this will particularly affect mojo developers because they are used straight from
the local repository. John was encountering this while working on the compiler.

This is most likely to bite when the version is the same, which happens when it is a SNAPSHOT
constantly being developed and tested.

I suggest a couple of things:
- the ability to easily run from a different M2_HOME on the command line (using the same start
script, but flipping homes)
- this verifies the need to separate the plugin repository from the artifact dependency repository
- I'd like the ability to force the use of a "clean" repository: a read only one (where the
jars are downloaded but not installed), used at runtime to get the plugins while developing
via some command line switch when your install gets hosed.

I'm open to further discussion on how this could work, especially in context of more light
being shed on the plugin repository use itself, and whether plugins can be installed for a
user by a profile.
