So far the people that have replied (including me) think that it is Ok to
Mavenize Tomcat as long as it doesn't force anyone to use Maven.  I,
personally, didn't find it very challenging to download the 4.1.13 source
distribution (to a machine behind a firewall), and configure it to build
including the optional libraries.  I really *don't* want to be forced to
download nMB of code to do what I can do with a couple of minutes with
emacs.

IMHO, it is better.  The 'download' target gets the jars from the project
release itself.  If you don't like one version, you can change your
build.properties to download another version.  On this count, Maven sounds
little better than jars-in-cvs (which we all know is A Very Bad Thing &copy;
Gump :).
