I would also be strongly infavor of moving to maven. I think Maven is  
exactly what is needed to simplify the dependency management, and make  
using a simple service such as "java spaces" easier to do without  
getting lost in all the rest of the dependencies. I use Maven for all  
my maven-dependent projects.

It is a task I'm willing to help with if the community agrees to move  
to Maven.
