I know I'm an envelope pusher and have the battle scars to prove it.
So you're about number five or six giving me that speech - I tend to get 
it every three to five years.
Somehow, following recipes doesn't quite work for me. Tools break at me 
if I do that, so I have learned to always push the envelope and hammer 
at the concepts until I grok them. There's always chips flying where I 
hammer - my mind or the concepts, sometimes both.

So while I can understand why you gave that speech, and have given it 
myself on occasion, I tend to ignore such speeches :-)

Does not apply to my situation, which his that I'm importing jars from 
an external project that I have no control over.

Also, does not apply to what I'm asking, which is: "I have multiple jars 
from an SVN repository, how do I put the jars from a consistent set each 
to its own Maven coordinate?"
