Just tried using a parent pom tonight and it worked fine.  Not sure
what was going on earlier today.

I'm still not fully convinced of the necessity of persisting an
artifact's default deploy location, but I'm going to take your guys'
word for it and do it the "Maven way".  And I'll try to do whatever I
can with DNS or virtual hosts or whatever to make it so that doesn't
have to change unnecessarily.

BTW, I'm thinking that we will probably have two main repositories, a
"staging" one and a "release" one.  Any build that succeeds and unit
tests pass will be deployed automatically to the staging repo (which
will be the default repo referenced by all the poms, well, the parent
pom).  Then after QA approval it will be deployed to the "release"
repo.  But if -DaltDeploymentRepository is buggy, maybe I should put a
variable in there.  Or can I just use the stage plugin to copy an
artifact from the staging to release repo?
