I have no problem with using maven or similar tasks for downloading
the deps, if they
can provide the same functionality with our build hacks, or at least
use them for the simple
cases.

I'm just -1 on using a framework that forces a particular way to do
things ( nothing personal
with maven, same -1 for any other framework :-). I know people have
religious ideas about
right and wrong, and frameworks is an expression of this - I just hope
I won't see this in tomcat...

It may be good to look at what other options exists for download and
pick one that is easy to use and fits well - maven might be the best
or not, that's one benefit of picking components and tools instead of
'they know better' frameworks.
