If I remember correctly, if your parent POM is located at the parent directory, you don't need
to declare the relative path, as mvn2 should be able to find it.
that is, (hope I remember correctly :P ), mvn2 will find the parent POM in the following order:
1) parent directory
2) modules in the same multi-module build
3) repository
(However, in 2.0.4, there seems to be a bug prohibiting 1 from working in some scenerioes)
