useProjectReferences is on by default, which will include
inter-project resolution.

However the plugin needs to find your workspace in order for it to work.
If your project is not located underneath your workspace then
m-eclipse-p can not automatically find it for you (it just walks up
the directory hierarchy looking for a valid workspace).
In that case you need to specify the workspace with -Dworkspace

I also work with the eclipse project name being the same as the artifact name.
I'm not sure what m-eclipse-p does if they differ.
I think I wrote some integration tests for this scenario, but YMMV.
