This reminds me ... would it be a good idea to have a generic velocity
plugin that allows to filter template files? E.g. imagine a custom (shell)
script to execute the final artifact that needs the current version merged
in. (I know, there's other ways to do it but said script would be more
than what maven-appassembler-plugin would be able to generate).


Anyway kids, have fun, play nicely, be good. And remember - if it ain't
broke, hit it again.
