Filip, this is a fairly rare case where I disagree with you ;)

It can be done without requiring any changes.

It's easier.  That's it.

Not true.  I, for one, spoke against it in the past.  Having used
Maven 2 for 2+ years, I now prefer it over Ant.  Moreover, I can
testify that it's saved me and my teams considerable time and resulted
in more consistent and cleaner builds.  I haven't even bothered to
subscribe to users@maven.a.o, much less dev@maven.a.o, I've just been
a pure user and it's been cool.

But like I said earlier, it's not worth disrupting the current Tomcat
build or source layout.  Only if it can be done without requiring any
changes, which it can.
