it overwriting your current binaries since Java was so awesome as to always create binaries
with a new md5sum (AWESOME feature let me tell you...).

of setting up a test environment is to create entirely new code repos and update poms.  Of
course code and poms get out of date -- so unexpected "goodness" has the ability to creep
up on us during production builds.

certainly have the capability, I would need to check archivia, but I suspect it might)
