I think we should keep Maven as well. Because in an ideal world, users do some modification
in hello-samza and get their job run (at least, it's an easy way to get start). Since we will
publish Samza to Maven repository, they do not need to compile the main codebase. Again, my
assumption is the same as Chris' -- Maven is more popular.

But I am ok with adding Gradle build script in addition, if that makes the explanation easier.
Just not sure if that will cause some conflicts or maintaining headache.
