BTW, as I'm sure Noel is listening - I'm still waiting on his feedback
to the proposal I put up specifically about his concerns.


On this thread, one gotcha I'll note about using file:/ repositories -
it may be difficult to get them to work as expected in a multiple
module project. They can still work, it just requires redefining them
in all POMs that use it, you can't inherit it with the correct
directory settings.
