To me, the answer depends a bit on whether the issue is a Maven bug
that was resolved with the later version or something else. If it was
a Maven bug, then I'm all for requiring the later, bug-reduced,
version. However, if the issue is that we're configuring something
incorrectly for the earlier version, then it seems to me we should
just fix our config, and make sure that also works with the newer
version of Maven.
